Make your mashed potatoes more memorable by mashing them with fresh roasted garlic and cream cheese. A delightful twist on the traditional.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 1/4 pounds red skinned potatoes, washed and quartered
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 3 cubes HERB-OX® Chicken Flavored Bouillon
- 7 cloves roasted garlic
- 1/4 cup cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Place potatoes in a large saucepan. Add water and bouillon. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain; reserving the cooking liquid. Mash potatoes with a potato masher or beat with an electric mixer. Add roasted garlic and cream cheese to potatoes. Gradually beat in enough reserved cooking liquid to make potatoes light and fluffy. Stir in parsley and serve immediately.
To Roast Garlic:
Slice the end of the garlic bulb off. Drizzle with olive oil and wrap in aluminum foil. Roast in a 400 degrees F oven for 45-50 minutes or until garlic is soft.
