Corny Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Corny Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe

I dreamed up this family favorite after dining on something similar in a restaurant. My family asks for these potatoes on special occasions, but I like them anytime. They're a nice change from our everyday mashed potatoes. -Patti Lacey, Lincoln, Nebraska

Ingredients

  • 1 whole garlic bulb
