Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes

04 Sep

Thick, creamy mashed potatoes seasoned with garlic and chives.

-By Carrie (Strommen) Lennie


1 bag of red potatoes
2 Tbsp minced garlic
¾ cup chives
1 stick of butter
1-2 cups of milk (depending on how creamy you want them)
salt to taste


  1. In a large pot, cover unpeeled potatoes with water. Bring to a boil, and continue boiling on high for about 1 hour or until potatoes are soft (a fork easily pushes into the potato).
  2. Drain water from pot. Using a potato masher, start breaking up the potatoes. Add butter, milk, garlic, chives, and salt.
  3. Continue mashing until most of the lumps are gone. I like to use a whisk at the end to help fluff them up.
