Adapted from Eating Well. I bumped up the garlic to roughly a whole bulb and pre-roasted it for extra garlic flavor! http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/garlic_mashed_potatoes.html

Recipe Ingredients for Garlic Mashed Potatoes

2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
12 cloves garlic, roasted
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, heated
2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1 Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Recipe Directions for Garlic Mashed Potatoes

  1. Place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Add salt and bring to a boil. Cook, covered, over medium heat until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pan. Shake the pan over low heat to dry the potatoes slightly. Remove the pan from the heat.

  2. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or an electric mixer (do not use a food processor). Add enough hot broth to make a smooth puree. Stir in sour cream and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
