Steakhouse Red Skin Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
These steakhouse style red skin, roasted garlic mashed potatoes are a fantastic way to bring your favourite fancy restaurant dinners, home. The secret to these silky, creamy mashed potatoes is two whole bulbs of roasted garlic, packed with luscious butter and cream. There's no better way to celebrate a special occasion!
Boil the Potatoes: Fill a large pot with cold water, salt, and the potatoes. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and boil the potatoes until they are fork tender. You want the potatoes to smash extremely easily with a fork.
6 Red skin potatoes
Prepare the cream: While the potatoes are boiling, heat up the cream and butter mixture in a sauce pan over the stove, or also in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second increments.
1 cup Heavy cream, ¼ cup Salted butter
Mash the potatoes: Once the potatoes are boiled, drain and return to the hot pot. Add the roasted garlic to the potatoes. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes until there are no visibly large chunks of potatoes. Add in half of the cream mixture, and continue to mash until the cream is mixed in.
Finish: Add the other half of the cream mixture to the potatoes, and combine using a spatula or wooden spoon. Add the salt and pepper, and mix. Top with some extra butter, and chopped chives.
1 teaspoon Sea salt, ¼ teaspoon Black pepper, Chives
Let the excess water evaporate from the potatoes before mashing! Once you drain the potatoes, return them to the pot to let the potatoes dry.
