Roasted garlic mashed potatoes are a perfect side dish for the garlic lover in all of us.  This recipe is super simple to make and comes out absolutely delicious.  But then again, what isn’t delicious with garlic?  I’d put that stuff in my cereal!!!


Roasting garlic takes some time but it is well worth it.  Once ready, the garlic becomes soft and in this case is added to the potatoes, but you can also use it to spread across bread drizzled with olive oil for a hearty snack.

It also goes great with a nice juicy steak!
