Thanksgiving Recipes: Mashed Potatoes with Garlic

Gravy without mashed potatoes is like dinner without wine. As far as the wine, we hope you've got plenty of Fog Crest Vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on hand. As for the potatoes, we add a whole lot of garlic to ours making them a savory delight.

This is the last of our Thanksgiving holiday recipes to share this week. We hope you've found something here that will become a new food tradition for your family's holiday table. And above all else, Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours - Cheers!


mashed potates



3 lbs of Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes

1 head of garlic peeled

½ - 1 cup heavy cream (depending on your philosophical outlook on life)

4 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp kosher salt

½ tsp freshly ground pepper

Add cubed potatoes and garlic to a large sauce pan and add salted water to cover.  Boil until soft.  Drain.  Mash potato/garlic mixture with a traditional masher or run through a potato ricer (depending on your tolerance for lumps).  Add butter and cream and mix.  Season to taste.

Plate and serve immediately.

Serves 8.
