Grab a serving spoon—one bite, and you'll be helping yourself to more scoops of the best Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes you've ever set on the table. What makes them so good?

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Scrub potatoes; pierce with fork to allow steam to escape. Wrap garlic cloves in foil. Bake potatoes and garlic 1 hour or until potatoes are soft.
  • 2
    In 8-inch skillet, heat oil and rosemary over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until rosemary is fragrant.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Serve these easy and creamy Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes with a seasoned rotisserie chicken and steamed green beans.
  • tip 2
    Allowing potatoes to cool a bit after baking will make them easier to handle, but don’t let them cool too long. They will be easier to mash while still warm.
  • tip 3
    You can substitute butter for the olive oil in this Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes recipe.
