"I have made a lot of mistakes falling in love, and regretted most of them, but never the potatoes that went with them." -Nora Ephron, Screenwriter

The refrigerator light goes on...

The key to good mashed potatoes is in the buttermilk / milk combination. The buttermilk adds richness and tartness, with little fat, and the milk adds creaminess. The butter is used here only as a flavor enhancer.

This recipe can easily be multiplied and leftovers are fair. This recipe requires Roasted Garlic.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes


Place the water in a large stock-pot over high heat.

Quarter the potatoes and add them to the stock-pot. Cover with water by about an inch. Bring to boil and then reduce heat until the water is simmering.

Cook the potatoes about 15 - 20 minutes, until slightly soft in the middle. They should give when squeezed.

Remove from heat and drain the water.

Add butter, buttermilk, milk, salt, and roasted garlic.

Mash the potatoes until creamy and the roasted garlic is well blended.

I like to leave some chunks of potatoes. If you like them smooth, be careful because overmashing will result in pasty potatoes.

Add ground black pepper to taste.
