We like potatoes and these are small so about 2 per person and then one....who doesn't like left over mashed potatoes for lunch!
Peeled washed and ready to cut!
If you cube the potatoes it will cut down on the cooking time.
Ann and Bobby would be so proud of my knife skills!!!
Along with the potatoes I put in fresh garlic cloves. I used about 5 small cloves. The garlic will cook and get tender just like the potatoes.
Did you know that if you rubbed your hands with a stainless spoon after handling garlic that it would take the garlic smell out of your skin!
Strain the water off the potatoes when they are tender (other words when you stab the potato and the fork comes out easily). You won't even see the garlic it just blends in with the potatoes.
Next you will need some milk and butter and I like to mix my potatoes with my hand mixer. I like my potatoes with a thicker constancy so I use a small amount of milk. If you like what is called "whipped" potatoes you could use more milk. Start out with a small amount because you can always add more. I also put the butter in while the potatoes are hot to give them extra flavor. This is also when I add the salt. Not to much because you don't need that much with the garlic.
Don't they look yummy!
Side Dish #2
You can't go wrong with a bag of Steam'able Veggies. Just follow the directions on the back. After cooking I added a pat of butter and some sea salt.
Dinner is served!!!!
It was Delicious!!! 45 minutes start to table. I hope you will try this and see if it makes your family as happy as it does mine!!!!
