Servings: 6


  • 4 russet potatoes peeled and cut into same size chunks
  • 1/2 cup of 2% milk
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2-3 tbsp Parmesan cheese finely grated
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste


  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into like sized chunks. Place them in a pot of salted water and boil until fork tender, about 15-18 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, simmer the milk, butter, and garlic together in a small saucepan, making sure to NOT let it boil. Side Note: This is an important step because it will poach the garlic which will make the garlic flavor more subtle instead of it being raw and overpowering the potatoes.
  • Once the potatoes are fork tender. Drain them in a strainer well. Place the potatoes back in the pot and add the warmed milk and garlic mixture then mash using a hand masher. Add the Parmesan and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste; Continue to mash until well combined. Taste and re-season if needed. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
