Recipe Notes

Use the potatoes that are starchy. They will make the best mashed potatoes.

You can add some milk if the potatoes looks dry.

If you want a strong garlic flavour, you can saute some smashed garlic cloves in butter and olive oil until they are slightly browned and then add this butter in the pot.

You can also use herbs like rosemary or thyme to flavour your mashed potatoes.

To make these potatoes more creamy and cheesy, add 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese.

Adjust the salt and seasoning according to your taste preference.
