Make Garlic Mashed Potatoes Like Restaurants
There is nothing better than creamy garlic mashed potatoes when you’re craving comfort food. This is the perfect side dish for so many delicious recipes, whether you are a meat lover or not.
Now, we all know that meat and potatoes typically go hand in hand, so if you want to stick to serving our Garlic Mashed Potatoes alongside meatloaf, meatballs (which are so easy to make with a meat-baller!) or stuffed pork loin–we completely concur.
GARLIC MASHED POTATOES
When you taste these mashed potatoes, you will fall in love with the flavor…as long as you’re a garlic lover that is. Now…these might not be first-date potatoes, unless you have some breath mints, but they are out of this world deliciousness in each and every bite.
Comfort food is one of those things that just brings a sense of calm. It could be a bowl of chili or soup on a cold day, warm and gooey cookies with a cup of hot cocoa, or perhaps a simple sandwich loaded with your favorite toppings. It is food that makes us feel at home…food that is perfect for curling up on the couch with a good book or movie…food that in essence defines comfort, just in its very being.
