Garlic Mashed Potatoes With Attitude

These are great potatoes and it was  my son-in-law who taught me how to get “lumpless” potatoes, guaranteed.


Enough potatoes for your guests

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 inch cube of cream cheese
  • 1 baked garlic head, flesh only
  • Whipping Cream


Boil your potatoes until they are thoroughly cooked. Drain water and with an old fashioned potato ricer,  mash the potatoes. Now put the mashed potatoes in your mixer, add all the ingredients and beat until smooth and no lumps appear. Use enough cream to make it light and fluffy.

To bake a head of garlic. Cut off the top of the head and discard, put in tin foil, pour a good quality olive oil just over the top. Seal and bake about 40 minutes at 375 degrees. Make sure it has caramelized before removing from the tin foil. When it has cooled for a few minutes, squeeze out the flesh into the potato mixture.

These potatoes are sooooooo good and will go with any dinner  you are planning. Everyone in this house loves them. Enjoy!
