Easy garlic smashed potatoes

Freshly roasted garlic is, by far, my most favorite form of garlic. You can substitute fresh garlic for garlic powder if that’s what you have. This recipe serves as a wonderful side dish to pair with your protein like steak, chicken or honey- baked ham.

In a piece of aluminum foil:
-put in 8 garlic cloves, peeled
-cover with olive oil
-add a dash of salt
-close up the foil and bake in a small oven at 350F for 40 minutes.

On stovetop:
-place the potato of your choosing (as many as you want to eat; try the fingerlings since they’ll cook faster & taste more buttery) in a pot of water + boil for 20-25 minutes.

-When done, dump the water, place cooked potatoes in a mash-able bowl and aggressively smoosh the life out of it with a fork (or handmixer) until smooth.
-Mix in the roasted garlic, salt to taste, 1-2 Tablespoons of butter, and some milk (2%) to smooth it all out
-For extra yumminess, sprinkle in cheddar cheese while the potatoes are still hot

So easy, even a lazy girl can do it (that would be referring to me).
