Garlic Mashed Yukon Gold Potatoes

In case you had not figured this out yet, our family loves garlic. Whenever we get a chance we add garlic, we do, so for the mashed potatoes I made for our Thanksgiving Feast, I added garlic of course!

Garlic Mashed Yukon Gold Potatoes

10 med Yukon gold potatoes
1 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp milk
4 tbsp butter
10 cloves garlic mashed
2 tbsp chopped chives
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Peel and cut potatoes into 1/4 inch pieces and place in large pot filled with water (this will prevent potatoes from browning). Add 1 tsp sea salt.
  2. Boil potatoes until easily pierced with a fork (about 20-30 minutes).
  3. Drain potatoes and mash.
  4. Add  1-2 tbsp milk (depending on the volume of potatoes you cooked you may need more or less) and the butter. Mash butter and milk into potatoes.
  5. Add 8-10 cloves garlic finely chopped (2-3 tbsp of bottled chopped garlic works well too and is very convenient).
  6. Add chopped cloves and  mash everything together, correcting taste if necessary with salt and pepper.
  7. Transfer to serving bowl and serve.
