Grandmother’s Garlic Mashed Potato Recipe

This is my grandmother’s recipe for mashed potatoes. Her motto is not to let anything go to waste. This recipe is delicious:

  • one pound of potatoes
  • one quarter to one half of garlic head [according to taste]
  • butter [two tablespoons or more]
  • one quarter cup whole milk
  • green onions

Place the peeled garlic, along with the potatoes in boiling water. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat. Remove from the heat when the potatoes and garlic are tender. When the potatoes are ready, so will the garlic. Save the boiled water. In a separate pan, warm the butter and the milk. Add to the mashed potatoes. Top the mashed potatoes with finely chopped green onions.

The saved boiled water is used for gravy and adds a touch of garlic flavor. My grandmother says this recipe is healthy for you.
