Mashed potatoes are the best side item, besides macaroni and cheese... I love potatoes in any form. Roasted garlic is the "secret" ingredient in these mashed potatoes. It makes all the difference in flavor! Learn how to roast garlic!
This recipe is my everyday lazy recipe for mashed potatoes. I use red potatoes, and I don't even peal the skins. Who has time for that? The key to good mashed potatoes is placing the raw potatoes in the water before you turn on the heat. The potatoes cook more evenly.
These are also perfect because you can make them ahead of time. I just pile them into a casserole dish and sprinkle some paprika on top for some color. When you are ready to eat them, preheat the oven to 350 and bake for around 30 minutes. So easy! Throw some pads of butter on top to make these extra delicious 🙂Print
