Makes 4 servings. Difficulty
4 Yukon Gold potatoes 1 garlic clove, peeled 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter 1/4 cup buttermilk Salt to taste
Peel potatoes and cut into a 1 inch dice. Place them along with peeled garlic clove in a large saucepan. Cover with water (about an inch above potatoes) and add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return potatoes and garlic clove to saucepan. Add butter and buttermilk. Using an electric hand mixer, beat potatoes until smooth. If they are too dry add a little more buttermilk. Season to taste with salt.
This is a great, simple recipe for garlic mashed potatoes. It requires very little effort and has the wonderful mild flavor of garlic throughout each bite of potatoes.
