Why you’ll love this roasted garlic mashed potato recipe: 

  • 5-Ingredient: Make this recipe with only 5-ingredients 
  • Quick Prep: Prep these in only 10-minutes and have them ready in under an hour 
  • Fan Fav: Everyone LOVES potatoes so you really can’t go wrong with this dish at any meal 

Ingredient Notes: 

Potatoes: I use russet potatoes for mashed potatoes as I like them the best. However, all you’re really going to want to do is pick a potato with a higher starch content like russet, or Yukon gold. 

Garlic: Garlic has so many health benefits like supporting your immune system which can be great this time of year. On top of that it has a host of antioxidants, can help lower blood pressure, and cholesterol, and even help with inflammation.

How to make roasted garlic mashed potatoes: 

  1. Preheat the oven or barbeque to 400F.
  2. To roast the garlic, cut off the very top of 2 bulbs, exposing the top.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the tops and wrap in tin foil.
  4. Bake in the oven or roast on BBQ for 30 – 40 minutes, until golden + roasted.
  5. To brown the butter, in a medium-sized pot add the butter and stir constantly over high heat. In a few minutes, the butter will foam up, cooking off any water content. Continue stirring, waiting for it to foam up a second time. After it foams the second time, the butter will begin to change color from golden to amber to chestnut red to brown. Once it contains mainly dark brown color, immediately transfer to a heat-safe container, and allow to cool. 
  6. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook your potatoes until soft and fork-tender.
  7. Drain, mash, and add to a large bowl. Set aside.
  8. Add the brown butter, roasted garlic, milk, and salt to the potatoes.
  9. Using a hand mixer, whisk until mostly smooth- it can have a few small pieces in it.
  10. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips & FAQ: 

Can I use non-dairy milk? Absolutely! Sub for your favorite plant-based milk instead. 

Do I have to use browned butter? Nope! Use your plant-based or regular unsalted butter instead. But I do LOVE the earthy taste brown butter brings to a recipe. 

Storage: Store in the fridge in an airtight container for 3 – 5 days.
