Step by Step Method

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



No special items needed.

These potatoes are so tasty and was delicious with little mini meatloaves we had. They are chunky, yet creamy and would be a great addition to any dinner plate!
