Ingredients

  • 1 head garlic
  • 2 pound potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoon chives

Preparation

Baking Directions:

Bang the garlic on the counter to break up the cloves, then peel off the skins.

Put the garlic and potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water.

Add the salt and bring to a boil, uncovered.

Simmer until there is no resistance when a fork is inserted into the potatoes, about 30 minutes.

While that’s going, warm the heavy cream and butter in a small pot over low heat until the butter is melted.

Drain the potatoes and garlic well in a colander then put them in a large bowl.

While the potatoes are still hot, pour in the warm cream and pulverize them with a potato masher.

Serving Directions:

Season with salt and pepper; sprinkle with chives before serving.

Tips:

If you plan on holding the mashed potatoes for a little bit, add an extra 1/2 cup of warm heavy cream so the potatoes will soak up the moisture and remain fluffy.
