Garlic Mashed Potatoes

These Garlic Mashed Potatoes are awesome, simple as that.  And I can go on about it for several reasons.  But first, know that most mashed potato recipes are very similar if not exactly the same, so how are you going to reinvent something that’s already been perfected by everybody?  The answer is simple.  Just think Potato.  There are so many different ways to cook potatoes so all you have to do is add that variety to Mashed Potatoes.  For me, I love potato chips.  One in particular, in fact, Potato Skins.  That’s one of the reasons I leave my skins on in this recipe; that and the nutrient factor.  Also, when I eat chips or a baked potato, I usually have Sour Cream.  Now, there is no Sour Cream in this recipe but most recipes use milk.  So I decided to use the next best thing that gives me the best of both worlds and that ingredient is Buttermilk.  Believe it or not it is the perfect balance.  That and the other ingredients I’ve added down below.  Anyway, these potatoes are great anytime but I think they’re even better around the Holidays.  So give this a try and don’t forget to leave your comments.

Poor Man's Gourmet Kitchen

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
