Tasty Tuesday: Mama Kenney's Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Chef Donavan here for another Tasty Tuesday Recipe! This is a recipe I grew up on and I still use it today in a professional setting. My mom is one of the reasons I went to culinary school. She taught me the first lesson of cooking "you gotta love to do it". You can serve it up with the Chicken Fried Steak recipe I gave you last week.

5 lbs peeled Russet Potatoes, cubed
8 gloves fresh garlic, peeled (do not use pre chopped garlic)
1/8 cup of olive oil
½ cup sour cream
½ cup butter softened
Salt and pepper to taste

Place peeled potatoes in a pot with water and boil until tender enough to mash with a fork.

Coat garlic with olive oil and roast in a 400 degree oven until lightly browned and soft enough to mash with a fork.

Drain water off the potatoes and place in a mixer or bowl.

Add butter, sour cream, salt, pepper and garlic

Mix on a meduim speed until smooth and creamy. (if mixing by hand use a wire whisk and smash potatoes)

Adjust with salt and pepper to your liking. Hold hot and serve with your favorite meal.

**take note that there is no milk in the recipe. The sour cream will give you the texture you are looking for and also add another layer to your final product.**
