  • 1 Head Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 3 lbs. Golden Potatoes, peeled and quartered (Like the skin on? Just give a wash!)

  2. Drizzle garlic with olive oil, then wrap in aluminum foil. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour.

  5. Remove the garlic from the oven and cut in half. Squeeze the softened cloves into the potatoes.
  6. Blend potatoes with an electric mixer or mash until desired consistency is achieved. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
