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

Serve.

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!

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!
