Best Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Absolutely the easiest and one of the best garlic mashed potatoes recipe I have found – and I LOVE garlic!

The garlic becomes milder as it cooks alongside the potatoes.

Make it Even Healthier:

You can adjust the recipe to your taste. If you are a real garlic lover you may want to try an extra clove or two. I would suggest not going too overboard though until you try the recipe. They are nice and garlicky with the 3 cloves called for here.

Buttermilk is a very healthy alternative to plain milk. And, despite it’s name, it is very low fat.

Another low fat alternative is to replace the milk or buttermilk with chicken stock or vegetable stock. It gives a very nice taste with very little fat.

This recipe is already low fat because you don’t use any butter at all. The wonderful flavor comes from the garlic and buttermilk.

Enjoy!

Tip:

  • What is a clove of garlic? I had a friend who thought a clove of garlic was the whole bulb. Every time a recipe called for 3 cloves of garlic, she would use 3 whole bulbs. Thank goodness her family loves garlic! So for the beginner cooks out there, “cloves” of garlic are the individual little pieces found within the bulb or head. Each clove will be surrounded by a paper like covering that should be peeled before use.

    Thanks for the recipe. It is just what I want for my dinner party. A little garlic will spice up the evening. I might substitute the butter milk for milk. I am thinking this will add less calories.
