Make Ahead Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe

I recently cooked a dinner for 80 ladies who were attending a meeting where the theme was “Back to School.” The menu, an old fashioned 60’s style school lunch served on trays, included meatloaf, potatoes, and green beans. B-O-R-I-N-G? Absolutely not! The meatloaf was baked with a special topping, the green beans included bacon and onions, and the mashed potatoes included roasted garlic, cream cheese, and lots of butter. The potatoes were the highlight of the dinner, and there were several requests for the recipe.

These creamy and delicious Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes not only can be made ahead, but they are quick and easy since they use roasted garlic from the Basic Roasted Garlic Module. If this convenient module isn’t already in your freezer, get out the slow cooker; it will be ready in no time.

12 Servings

5 pounds potatoes
1 tablespoon salt

2 tablespoons roasted garlic puree from the Roasted Garlic Module
1/2 cup butter
4 oz. softened cream cheese
1/3 cup powdered milk
1 cup boiling water, (from the potatoes)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

2 tablespoons snipped chives
  1. Peel the potatoes, slice into 1" slices, and cover with water; add 2 tablespoons salt.

  2. Bring to a boil; simmer until done, about 45 minutes.

  3. Pour the potatoes into a colander to thoroughly drain (reserving 1 cup of the water).

  4. In a large mixing bowl, beat the garlic puree, butter, and cream cheese until fluffy; add the hot potatoes.

  5. Mix the dry milk with the hot potato water and add enough to the potato mixture to make it light and fluffy.

  6. Stir in the salt and chives and serve.
