Simple Side Dish: Garlic Mashed Potatoes


I ran into Publix today and noticed they had their red potatoes on sale for $2.99 per bag. . . which isn't a huge sale, but we love red potatoes so I decided to grab them! I'm not quite sure that I loved them quite as much as these Roasted Garlic Potatoes (those are just amazing . . . ), but they were so easy and better than plain old mashed potatoes.  Here's how to make them if you'd like to liven up potatoes at your house for dinner ~


Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes recipe adapted from All Recipes
