I've done this many times and is my go to recipe for thanksgiving and christmas. The recipe is only accurate if you are cooking a lot of potatoes. For example, I experimented with 8- 10 pounds of potatoes, and it turned out great. But if you are using like 4 pounds or less, then it be wise to use 2 to 3 tbps of butter, and maybe 1/4 to 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Also you have to use less salt and pepper. I say this because the recipe on her site isn't 100% accurate, and you will end up with super buttery mashed potatoes and thats not the end goal. I recommend using the potato ricer because it makes those potatoes develop such a smooth and fluffy texture. But if you like chunky, don't use it. Also, please use fresh rosemary! Dried rosemary is good but compared to fresh it's crap.

Warning: These mashed potatoes are addictive as fuck.

Rosemary Garlic Mashed Potatoes


4 Large Potatoes
2 Medium Heads of Garlic
3 Sprigs of Fresh Rosemary
¾ cup of Heavy Cream
6 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter
3 teaspoons of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1 Tbsp of Olive oil


1) Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

2) Slice the 2 heads of garlic in half so that every clove is cut in half. Place the bottom halves on a piece of aluminum foil and drizzle each bottom with a tiny drizzle of olive oil. Cut the rosemary sprigs in half and place 3 halves on each bottom, sprinkle over some salt and drizzle a little more olive oil. Top each stack with the top half and wrap tight in the foil and bake for 45 to 55 minutes.

3) Meanwhile peel your potatoes and cut them into chunks. Put them in a pot and cover with cold water. Cook them until fork tender, drain and set aside.

4) When the garlic is done roasting, set it aside to cool a little. Put the potatoes in a bowl and mash the potatoes according to the consistency you like. Once the garlic is cool to handle, pop out the cloves into the bowl with the mashed potatoes. In a small sauce pan, warm up the cream and butter just until the butter is melted, add it to the mashed potatoes and roasted garlic. Season with salt and pepper and stir to mix well. Serve on pretty plate and enjoy!
