I was treated to dinner at Stuart Anderson's in Seattle (or it's 
surrounding area) and ordered the Garlic Mashed Potatoes.  They were 
wonderful and I was wondering does anyone have an idea on how to go about 
making them.

I make them all the time and the kids love them.  It's quite simple.  
When boiling the potatoes, add several peeled cloves of garlic.  When the 
potatoes are done, add your cream and butter and mash them as usual.

While the potatoes are boiling, heat the butter you would normally put in
the mash. Take the desired number of cloves of garlic and smash them with
the side of a chef's knife. Cook them in the butter a few minutes, but, do
not brown them (or the butter). You will have to experiment a bit to de-
termine the amount of garlic. When the potatoes are done add the garlic 
butter and cream and mash as usual. I remove the garlic cloves before
mashing, as well as peeling the spuds and avoiding lumps. I perfer my
mashed potatoes to be smooooth.

Considerably more work is involved than the "Garlic Mashed Potatoes"
recipes posted but it is definitely worth it!

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Immerse two pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into three inch chunks in cold
water for five minutes to remove excess starch.  In a large pot of boiling
salted water, cook potatoes for about fifteen minutes until tender, then
drain.  Put potato cubes and two heads of ROASTED garlic pulp (about two
tablespoons) through a ricer.  Add two tablespoons unsalted butter and two
tablespoons olive oil.  Slowly pour in two-thirds cup heated half and
half, stirring until the potatoes are creamy but not soupy.  Add salt and
pepper to taste.  Serves four.

I roast several heads of garlic until soft and then mash the roasted
pulp in with the potatoes.  I also add milk and butter but maybe you
could get away with just using dairy-free margerine.
I made garlic mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving and they were great!

This is what I do for my garlic mashed potatoes. Boil my potatoes till 
tender. Saute cut up garlic cloves in butter/marg. till soft - I always 
put a bit of butter/marg. in with my mashed potatoes so I just use the 
garlic butter/marg. in place of plain butter/marg. Beat, whip, smash or 
mash as usual...

Use butter/marg. and garlic according to how many potatoes you are 
cooking and your -garlic taste...

The easiest one is to add peeled cloves of garlic to the water that you 
are boiling your potatoes in.  Don't take them out either when you are 
going to mash the potatoes, just mash them with the potatoes.

Voila, garlic mashed potatoes.

Could anyone help me with a good recipe for garlic mashed potatoes.

My first thought is to just mash baked potatoes (maybe 8 or 9), add a
head (or 2??) of roasted garlic, then the usual butter and milk, mix til
smooth.

Any good recipies or suggestions would be great.

Quick and easy here:

Boil the potatoes, drain. Sprinkle in garlic powder (as much or as little 
as you like), mash. Add a sprinkling of dill, some lemon juice, a bit of
milk, and mix until smooth.

                      Garlic Mashed Potatoes (Irish)

Serving Size  : 4    Preparation Time :0:45
Categories    : Potatoes                         Irish

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   1 1/4  pounds        russet potatoes peeled -- cut 1/2 inch pieces
     1/4  cup           milk
   6      large         cloves garlic -- peeled and crushed
     1/4  cup           whipping cream
     1/4  cup           butter (1/2 stick) -- room temperature

Place potatoes in medium saucepan.  Add enough water to cover

and simmer until potatoes are very tender, about 25 minutes.

Drain potatoes and garlic, reserving 1/4 cup cooking liquid.  Return

NOTES : The Irish call garlic gairleog, and it has been used to flavor
their food since prehistoric times.  In fact, it was sufficiently
significant to have a day named after it: Garlick Sunday, the first
Sunday in August.  Here the garlic is combined with the ubiquitous
potato.

i just toss in 5 or so peeled cloves for every 4 or so potatoes (it's all 
a matter of garlic preference, really), and boil it all together.  (dicing
the potatoes greatly speeds things up.)  i puree it all in a food mill,
then add salt and milk till it's the way i like.  it's nice.  well, i like
it, and even matt has requested it...  once or twice.

3 pounds medium sized potatoes
6 large cloves of garlic unpeeled
1/4 cup olive oil

Peel potatoes or not depending on your taste. Simmer potaoes and garlic
cloves in a large pot of water, 35-40 minutes. Drain. Squeexe out garlic
from skins. Mash potatoes and garlic coarsly. Add olive oil and mash some
more. Add salt and pepper to taste (I like to add a generous amount of
freshly ground pepper). Serve right away.

Throw peeled garlic cloves (as many as you like) in with the potatoes when 
you boil or steam them.  Drain and mash them together when the potatoes 
are cooked, adding liquid (milk, cream, buttermilk) to your taste.

I prefer to steam them with 3 or 4 cloves per potato using the minimum amount 
of water.  After passing the potatoes and garlic through a ricer, I add cooking 
water until I have the desired consistency.

If you prefer the taste of raw garlic, push raw garlic through a press into 
the potatoes after mashing or ricing them.

No.  Wrong type of potato and wrong cooking method.  Go with your second

   1 1/2  cups          Milk

PEEL AND CUT POTATOES into quarters. Place in cold water in a medium-size pan, 
bring to a boil and cook 15-to-20 minutes, until tender. Meanwhile, plunge the 
garlic into boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.
Drain, then peel when cool enough to handle. Place in a small saute pan with 
half the butter over low heat for 10 minutes. Be very careful not to let the 
garlic burn. Add 1 cup of milk, bring to the boil and simmer 2 minutes. Puree 
in a blender or food mill, or press through a sieve. Drain the potatoes well 
then put through a potato ricer or food mill, or use a potato masher. (Do not 
use a food processor, as it will make the potatoes gummy.) May be prepared up 
to this point ahead of time, then reheated in a 325F oven for 20-to-30 minutes. 
Add more butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, 1/2 cup warmed milk and seasonings to 
taste.
Serve immediately for best flavor.

Boil about 2 lbs. of  potatoes with a couple of peeled garlic cloves. 
When cooked, pass potatoes and garlic cloves through a ricer, add hot

Here you go all who have waited. Don't worry about the amount of
garlic, even people who hate garlic will not even know that much is in
the dish.


2 heads garlic, about 30 cloves
4 Tb butter
2 Tb flour
1/4 tsp salt
Pinch of pepper
2 1/2 lbs. baking potatoes
4 Tb softened butter
Salt and white pepper
3-4 Tb whipping cream
4 Tb minced parsley

Separate the garlic cloves. Drop into boiling water and boil 2 mins,
drain and peel.

Cook the garlic slowly with the butter in the covered saucepan for
about 20 mins or until very tender but not browned.

Blend flour and stir over low heat until it froths with the butter for
about 2 mins without browning. Off heat, beat in the boiling milk and
seasonings. Boil, stirring for 1 min. Rub the sauce through a sieve or
puree in an electric blender. Simmer for 2 mins more.

Peel and quarter the potatoes. Drop in boiling salted water to cover
and boil until tender. Drain immediately and put through a potato
ricer (I use a food processor).  Place the hot puree in the saucepan
and beat with the spatula or spoon for several minutes over moderate
heat to evaporate moisture. As soon as the puree begins to form a film
in the bottom of the pan, remove from heat and beat in the putter a
tablespoon at a time. Beat in salt and pepper to taste.

Shortly before serving beat the hot garlic sauce vigorously into the
hot potatoes. Beat in the cream by spoonfuls but do not thin out the
puree too much. Beat in parsley. Correct seasoning and turn into a hot
serving dish.

I adore garlic, and have at one point nearly eaten an entire head of
roasted garlic in mashed potatoes.  The only problem I have is that too
much of it can make me sick to my stomach.  Does anyone else get ill if
they eat too much?  I'd love to fix this mashed potato recipe, but I'd
be terrified of how much the 30 cloves of garlic would affect me.

yeah, but are you really gonna down 2 1/2 pounds of potatoes at one
sitting?  i mean, hey, more power to ya if you can, but that's not even
including the flour, 1/2 c of butter, whipping cream, and whatever else
was in that recipe.

I've never had the problem :-).  But if you eat that many mashed potatoes
in a sitting, one would get sick :-).  This recipe is very mild, I've made
it numerous times.  An the garlic is cooked so much that it has no bite
whatsoever!  I love this recipe of Julia's and while it is more involved
than other garlic mashed potato recipes it is the best in my book "-).

Hmm... well I'm not eating more than a half cup or at max one cup of
mashed potatoes, but I do get ill.  I also feel the same way if I eat
the roasted garlic atop some french bread.  I tend to put a clove or
two on each piece.

I guess I just must be hypersensitive to it, but I do so love it!

Please, if anyone's had any noticeably adverse affect to garlic stomach-
wise, let me know.

Because the garlic becomes a puree, the pungent taste you THINK will
be there is gone. I think so many garlics are asked for is because
when it's cooked and mashed, the flavor drops, so..using more provides
a consitant flavor. That's why, in the book, she says something like
you'll think this sounds like a large amount, but.....and goes on to
explain why so many garlic cloves are required 
 
I've served it for Thanksgiving, and all loved it (of course, didn't
even tell them how many cloves were in there.)

The easiest way to make garlic mashed potatoes is to toss peeled
garlic in with the potatoes while they cook and mash everything
together.  I usually use at least one large clove garlic for each
potato.  I have also made roasted garlic mashed potatoes by squeezing
the roasted garlic into the finished mashed potatoes and mixing
everything up..YUM!

I steam peeled potatoes along with peeled garlic cloves and pass the works
through a ricer. Then I mix in any combination of dairy product that takes 
my fancy (or fits my diet plan - anything from skim milk to whipping cream) 
to moisten the mixture. If you don't own a ricer, get one, or user a masher.  
Some people swear by roasted garlic but I find steaming it with the potatoes 
doesn't change the flavour too much. Try both and stay with whichever takes 
your fancy.

4 large Russet potatoes
1 head roasted garlic 
heated milk
1/2 cup fresh basil
butter
salt/pepper

The garlic is roasted by cutting off the top so the cloves are barely
exposed and cut, drizzling with olive oil, wrapping tightly with foil, and
placing in a preheated 400 degree oven for 45 min.

Coarsely chop the potatoes (I personally leave the skin on) and boil till
fork tender. Dump the water out of the pot and return the drained potatoes
to the hot dry pot over heat for about 1 minute, until all the water has 
evaporated. Dump the potatoes into your mixing bowl. Squeeze the head of 
garlic so that the softened cloves come out like toothpaste, into potato 
bowl. (If the cloves are not soft enough to be of that consistenty, then 
out them in a separate small bowl and smash them up well, then add them to 
potatoes). Driddle in enough warmed milk eto get the desired consistency. 
(Usually about 1/2 cup for me). Option: add the fresh chopped Basil. Yum!) 
Add 2 tbsp. butter, salt, pepper. Dive in! 6 big servings, unless I am 
eating, in which case there is my portion and 3 other servings, and get 
your hands off mine.
