These epic Garlic Potato Puree They are buttery and delicious and the perfect surprise for the festive table or special dinner.
Garlic Potato Puree
Start by soaking whole and crushed garlic cloves in a hot mixture of butter, cream and milk. This will ensure that that garlic flavor is infused throughout the dish. Then cook the potatoes in salted water so that each layer has the best possible flavor. Finally, brown the buttered potatoes under the broiler to add another layer of flavor and texture. This garlic mashed potato is rich, creamy, decadent, and a must try for potato lovers!
Once the potatoes are mashed and mixed with the butter and cream mixture, use a spoon to create a spiral swirl over the potatoes. Play around with it. The deeper the eddies and the longer the potatoes remain under the grill, the more pronounced the design.
These mashed potatoes are ultra rich and creamy. If you want them a little more fluffy, try reducing the thick cream.
The toasted butter crust on top is my favorite part of these potatoes. Keep an eye on them under the grill so they don't go too far. I used a baking dish that was oven safe up to 450 degrees. Do not use a Pyrex or glass baking dish for this recipe as they are not suitable for grilling.
