Jennie's Garlic Smashed Potatoes
Disclaimer: these are NOT "diet" potatoes. They are completely delicious potatoes. :)
5 lbs red potatoes, scrubbed but NOT peeled
1 head of garlic, broken into cloves and peeled
1/2 - 3/4 cup milk
1 stick butter
about 12oz sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
cut the potatoes into chunks and boil in just enough water to cover them. Put the cloves of garlic in the water too, and boil them with the potatoes.
When the potatoes are soft, drain out the water. Add the milk, salt, pepper, butter and sour cream and smash together until creamy.
Whip with a wooden spoon until fluffy.
Make these potatoes a day before you want to serve them so the flavors can mellow together. I put them in a casserole dish and re-heat in the oven.
Have wonderful Thanksgiving, US friends, and have a lovely day, International friends!!
