Garlic Mashed Potatoes

This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


  • 1 pound red potatoes
  • ½ c. skim milk
  • 2 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • ½ tsp. white pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh chives, chopped (optional)


Peel potatoes, cut into quarters and place in cold, salted water for about 15 minutes. Drain in colander, rinse well and place in 2-quart saucepan containing 2 cups of boiling water. Cover and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Meanwhile, have milk warming over low to medium heat. Add garlic to hot milk and simmer until garlic is soft, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove cooked potatoes from heat, drain in colander, replace in saucepan and cover to keep warm. Add milk-garlic mixture and white pepper to potatoes, mash with potato masher and then whip with an electric mixer. If desired, garnish with chopped fresh chives.
