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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 whole garlic bulb
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 8 medium red potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 1 can (11 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1. Remove papery outer skin from garlic (do not peel or separate cloves). Brush with oil. Wrap in heavy-duty foil. Bake at 425° for 30-35 minutes or until softened. Cool for 10-15 minutes.

"I first made this recipe for a weekly potluck/prayer meeting and it got rave reviews. People went back for seconds and thirds and there was just enough left over to fight over at lunch the next day! The roasted garlic makes all the difference. It's a bit more trouble than regular mashed potatoes, but worth every single bit of effort. Delicious!"
