Here's a recipe for creamy, delicious garlic mashed potatoes. It's got to be one of my family's favorite things. You can have these with beef, chicken or just by themselves! I always make lots so we have some for leftovers the next day. Simply delicious!

Simple ingredients for a delicious experience!

In case your were thinking this was onion or something, it's not. Yes, that's garlic! I am using 8 potatoes, so I've diced about 9 cloves of garlic!

Melt the butter and add the garlic. Saute for 4-5 minutes.

It should look nice and golden brown. Mmmmmm....

Peel and dice the potatoes. Put in a pot of boiling water and cook until soft.

Drain the potatoes, do not rinse.

Put them in a mixer or other large bowl. Add all the ingredients.

Mix until everything is blended well. Don't overmix though or you'll have glue, not good.

These smell so good I want to just dive in and eat them right now.

Scoop them out into an oven safe dish and top with parmesan.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until you can see the peaks getting nice and golden brown. Remove from oven and serve hot. Enjoy!
