Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I had a few left over ingredients from my Cauliflower and Broccoli Gratin, so I decided to incorporate them with my homemade Garlic Mashed Potatoes. The heavy cream and butter provided a richness to the dish to balance out the garlicky flavor in the potatoes. Of course you can never go wrong with something made from scratch. With 5 simple ingredients, you are all set to make this a weekly side dish that your family will love. In the words of Ina Garten, How easy is that?
