“The garlic mashed potatoes is what potatoes should be: garlicky and salty. I add some cream in it to give it a velvety texture and run it through a potato presser to ensure there being no lumps in it. I personally don't mind the lumps, but my sister hates lumpy mashed potatoes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the potatoes and dice into 1 inch cubes.
  2. Place potatoes and whole garlic cloves into a large pot and fill with cold water until potatoes are completely submerged with water by at least one inch. Add enough salt to make the water salty.
  3. Bring the pot to a boil, then boil the potatoes until it can be pierced with a fork without resistance.
  4. Strain the potatoes then put the pot over low heat until the potatoes dry out.
  5. Mash the potatoes and garlic, and add milk, cream, butter, 2 tsp salt, garlic salt, and dried oregano. Serve immediately.
