Garlic Mashed Potatoes
3 lbs. Harvest Haven German butterball potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1" chunks
4 large Harvest Haven garlic cloves, smashed, peeled, and cut in half width-wise
2 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons butter, softened, plus more for serving
½ cup milk
salt and pepper, to taste
Place the potatoes and garlic cloves in a large pot. Fill with water up to 2" over the potatoes. Cover and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Once boiling, remove the lid, and reduce the heat slightly. Boil for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.
Drain in a colander.
Place the potatoes in a large bowl. Add the softened cream cheese, butter, milk and salt and pepper, to taste. Mash with a potato masher or beat with a hand held mixer until they reach the desired consistency. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.
Serve warm with chives and additional butter, if desired. Enjoy!
