Hello everyone!

I am a big fam of the potato, I could have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner if it was up to me.

My friends are always so surprised when we are out eating and my order is a plate of mashed potatoes… “What!? That’s it? No salad, no meat?”

I’ve loved potatoes since I was a little girl, and if I was lucky enough to have some money in my pocket I would buy some green peas, pickled cucumbers or a bag of potatoes.. it’s wierd, I know.

But now to the recipe.

Garlic and Parmesan mashed potatoes are just heavenly; deluxe mashed potatoes with lots of flavor. The cheese and the garlic really give this dish that extra something, you just have to try it!
  • 450 gram potatoes
  • 60 gram unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 50 gram Parmesan cheese
  • 1-2 tsp salt
  • 1-2 tsp pepper
  • 180-200 ml warm milk
  1. At my favorite US restaurant The Cheesecake Factory, they make amazing mashed potatoes cooked with the skins on. I use peeled potatoes here, but if you’re cooking yours with the skins on, just make sure you wash them well in cold water before slicing.
  2. Slice the potatoes and put them into a saucepan. Cover with cold water and bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 minutes on a medium heat.
  3. Meanwhile, grate the Parmesan and bring out the remaining ingredients.
  4. Melt the butter, then stir in the crushed garlic cloves. Add the grated Parmesan, salt and pepper, and stir to make a paste.
  5. Drain the potatoes and mash.
  6. Add the garlic- and Parmesan mixture and the warm milk, and mix well with the masher. Season to taste.
  7. This is soo good! If you really love garlic you can of course use more, or try adding 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (mixed with 1/2 teaspoon warm water).
  8. Serve the garlic and parmesan mashed potatoes as is, or with sausages or meatballs, and a green salad on the side.
I hope you’ll try it!

With love from Manuela.
