Easy Garlic Mashed Potatoes

The trick to this yummy and easy side dish is cooking the garlic with the potatoes, then mashing them up together.

Preparation time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 20 mins

2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into large pieces
8 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Add potatoes and garlic to a large saucepan; cover with 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil and simmer until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain well and put back in pan. Add milk, butter, salt and pepper; mash with a potato masher until creamy. Serve immediately.
