Homemade Garlic Mashed Potato Recipe

Mashed Potatoes With Parmesan Cheese

This garlic mashed potato recipes is delicious, due to the addition of Parmesan cheese. Are you looking for a garlic recipe without an over bearing garlic taste? If so, this recipe is just right, because only a touch of garlic is added.  

For this recipe I like to use an all-purpose potato like Yukon or Finnish Gold.  

Mainly because of their natural buttery taste and both of these potatoes are ideal for mashing.  

Whenever I make garlic mashed potatoes I prefer to start with baked potatoes.

However, you can boil the potatoes prior to mashing them up. If you're pressed for time boiling is the quickest way to go.
