Roasted Garlic - Parmesan Mashed Potatoes
Fresh roasted garlic and parmesan cheese flavor these mashed potatoes that wi go great with any main dish or holiday dinner.
2 garlic bulbs
Olive oil (optional)
3 pounds potatoes, peeled and quartered
2 tsp. salt, divided
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp. pepper
Garnish: fresh thyme sprigs
Cut off pointed ends of garlic bulbs: place garlic on a piece of aluminum foil, and drizzle with oil, if desired. Fold foil to seal. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes; cool to touch. Squeeze pulp from garlic cloves and set aside. Bring potato, 1 teaspoon salt, and water to cover to a boil in a Dutch oven; boil 20-25 minutes or until potato is tender. Drain. Mash potato, or press through a ricer. Stir in garlic, remaining 1 tsp. salt, whipping cream and next 4 ingredients. Garnish, if desired.
Notes: Add a little more milk if desired. I actually added about 1/4 cup skim milk and the consistancy was just right.
Number of Servings: 6
