Ingredients: two pounds medium-sized potatoes (most preferably Yukon Gold), 1 garlic bulb, 1/3 cup cream, 1 tablespoon olive oil, three tablespoons butter, Salt and pepper to taste,


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Get rid of garlic peels and slice off the tops of every clove. Spray a little bit of olive oil on the peeled garlic, sprinkle some salt, and slowly cover them in an aluminum foil. Bake within the preheated oven for 40 minutes or until the garlic cloves has become tender and golden brown. Take out from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes. In the meantime, prepare a medium-sized pot. Rinse off the potatoes completely and take the skins away. Soon after you've finished peeling, slice the potatoes into 1-inch cubes and boil into the cooking pot with adequate water to cover them in addition to teaspoon of salt. Just after several minutes of boiling, adjust heat into a simmer until your potatoes get tender when pricked with a fork or toothpick for around 15-10 minutes.

In another saucepan, a smaller one, dissolve butter and cream with each other till warm and uniformly mixed. Remove the potatoes entirely and bring back into the stovetop over very low heat.

Toss in roasted garlic in to the potatoes and start off mashing them utilizing a potato masher or even a fork would do. Pour in cream and butter and proceed mashing till mixture will be thick and paste-like. Make sure not to overwork the potatoes.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper in your preferred quantity. Serve right away and relish!
