Garlic Mashed Potatoes.
2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and chopped
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
Freshly ground black pepper
Place the potatoes in a large saucepan of salted water and bring
to a boil. Cook at a low boil for about 15 minutes, until tender.
Meanwhile, combine the garlic, butter, and cream in a saucepan,
and simmer for about 20 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a blender
and puree until smooth. Drain the potatoes, place in a mixing bowl,
and add the garlic cream puree. Mash together with a potato masher
or fork, leaving them smooth or lumpy as you prefer. Season with
salt and pepper.
