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!
