Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Roasting garlic in the oven brings out its sweet, nutty flavor. So it doesn't overpower mellow mashed potatoes. If you're looking for a Diabetic and/or Low-Fat Friendly recipe, see my tip below.

Serve these easy potatoes with a seasoned rotisserie chicken and steamed green beans. It's also great with pork.

  • 6 Medium Potatoes (About 2 Lbs.)
  • 6 Cloves Garlic, Unpeeled
  • 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp. Fresh Rosemary, Chopped or 1/2 Tsp. Dried & Crushed
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp. Coarsely Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup 2% Milk


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Scrub potatoes; pierce with fork to allow steam to escape. Wrap garlic cloves in foil. Bake potatoes and garlic 1 hour or until potatoes are soft.
  2. In 8-inch skillet, heat oil and rosemary over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until rosemary is fragrant.
  3. Cut potatoes in half; carefully spoon potatoes into large bowl. Save skins for another use or discard. Slip skins off cloves of garlic; discard skins. Add garlic, oil mixture, salt and pepper to potatoes. Mash until fluffy, adding milk until desired consistency; serve warm.
  4. Tip: Make this Diabetic and/or Low-Fat by replacing the 2% milk with skim or fat-free sour cream.
