Who doesn’t love creamy, garlicky mashed potatoes? I definitely do. In this easy to make garlic mashed red potato recipe, red potatoes are quartered then boiled until soft. Drained and then mashed together with cream and butter. A fabulous comfort food that is perfect for any occasion.

Creamy and buttery, these mashed potatoes will be fantastic on a holiday table. Boiling the potatoes in garlic adds a subtle flavor of garlic throughout the recipe. We really love using red potatoes in the recipe. The skins are left on and give a rustic feel to the dish. The mashed potatoes are creamy with a few lumps... just like mom used to make.
