Roasted Garlic Smashed Potatoes

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

These roasted garlic smashed potatoes are perfect for a side dish!



  1. Fill a large pot with water and 1 Tablespoon of salt.
  2. Cut the washed red potatoes in half and place in the room temperature salted water.
  3. Place the potatoes in water on the stove top and turn the heat to high to bring to a boil.
  4. Boil the potatoes for around 20 minute, or until they are fork tender.
  5. Turn off the heat and dump the cooked potatoes and water in a colander. Place the empty pot back on the same hot burner, and put the cooked potatoes back in that pot. This will evaporate any excess water from the potatoes.
  6. Add the butter, cream cheese, milk, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper to the pot. Smash together with a potato masher.
