Creamy Garlic Mashed Potato Recipe
Garlic Mashed Potatoes With Parmesan Cheese
This garlic mashed potato recipe 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.
Whether you decide to bake them first or boil them, the choice is up to you. What's important is that you give this recipe a try. See you in the kitchen.
