The holidays are approaching and you do NOT want to miss this on your dinner table! These mashed potatoes are the perfect pairing for any protein and easy to make. Smother them in gravy, or leave them as is, they are delicious either way! The roasted garlic and herbs gives this rich flavor.
First, take your garlic and roast in the oven an 375F. Wrap garlic in foil and drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper. Wrap and oven bake for at least 40 minutes or until tender. Meanwhile, peel and cut your russet potatoes. I use 3 large potatoes to serve about 4-6 people.
I cut them into thirds and boil until tender. Remove from the water and let cool for about 10 minutes. You want to keep them warm, but not too hot to where it is too hard to work with them. I like using a ricer to get the potatoes extra fine. If you do not have one, a simple potato masher will do just fine!
Mash your potatoes and add your roasted garlic, 1/2 tbsp Each of chopped rosemary, thyme, and sage, and 1/2 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese.. Mix in 1 stick of butter, and 1 cup of heavy cream. you can add more cream if you want a velvety texture. Really the ratios depend on your preference! Salt your potatoes to your liking. Serve with butter and minced parsley. Enjoy!
