Yummy potatoes! Love the addition of garlic with potatoes. Makes them taste so darn good!.

  US | Metric  Print Ingredients
  • 6 large (2 pounds) potatoes (diced into large cubes)
  • 1 large head garlic (roasted in the oven)
  • 6 tablespoons butter (or 6 tablespoons margarine)
  • 1 cup sour cream (I use light)
  • Salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

What You Will Need

No special items needed.
  How to Make

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350.

Step 2

Cut the top of the garlic bulb, and place on the middle rack in the oven. Bake until bulbs start to pop out of the skins, about 20-25 minutes.

Step 3

After the garlic bulb is roasted in the oven, remove, and squeeze the bulb, and the garlic will pop out of each finger.

Step 4

Put roasted garlic pieces into a dish, and mash, or chop up fine. Set aside.

Step 5

Meanwhile: While the garlic is roasting, cook potatoes in a lg. pan, just covering with water for about 25 minutes, or until fork inserts easliy when inserted. Drain well, put cover on, and set aside.

Step 6

To drained potatoes, add roasted garlic, butter, sour cream, salt, and pepper.

Step 7

Mash with a hand masher. I use a rubber spatulda to break up potatoes a little more. You don't want them completely mashed like regular mashed potatoes.

Step 8

Review by StansBetterHalf

These were part of our Easter dinner and we loved them with the garlic. The chunky potatoes had a nice texture to have with our baked ham. These are delicious and now that we have tried them with the roasted garlic we will indulge in them many more times!

I made these potatoes for the first time at Thanksgiving and man are they super good! We liked everything about them!


Review by FunTimeCooking

My first time trying these potatoes was for Thanksgiving and we loved them! My mom is now a true believer after tasting them and took the recipe home with her. It's nice when something so simple can be so helpful for us new cooks!


Review by KeeWee

We love the texture of these potatoes and they tasted great with our steak. Good stick to your ribs potatoes that make you want to clean your plate!


Review by ChowDown

Delicious! I liked having something different to serve for mashed potatoes. I had a few leftovers for me to bring as part of my lunch the next day and they tasted just as good heated up in the microwave.

My wife whipped up these spuds for Easter for the first time but it won't be our last. We give them thumbs up to have again and again!


Review by PotzNPanz

These are THE BEST potatoes and that's all I have to say about em!


Review by CookTillUDrop

We love our mashed potatoes and this recipe really step up the flavor of the ordinary mashed potatoes. They are so delicious that I always over indulge but my wife doesn't mind at all that we all love them so much. She just doubles the batch so we have plenty! They are even great as leftovers heated up in the microwave.


Review by Jay

I made these to go with Grecian Style Steak that I found here. It was the right side to choose for the steak and it really enhanced the meal. We loved the flavor of the potatoes so much! We will have these on a regular basis when we want more than just mashed potatoes. Thank you LindasBusyKitchen for posting it!
