Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Roasted Garlic

Did You Know? During Ancient Greek and Roman weddings, brides carried bouquets of garlic and herbs instead of flowers!

Researching Thanksgiving meal ideas has proven to be quite the task. There are so many recipes, and everyone has a unique variation. I came across this recipe at Closet Cooking, and knew it would be good when I saw the addition of cream cheese. Although it's not one of my favorites, Martha swears by it when it comes to mashed potatoes. It's not the most healthful dish, by any means, but it's for Thanksgiving, so enjoy...

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
2 pounds potatoes, quartered (I used yukon gold)
1 head roasted garlic, cloves squeezed from bulb
1/2 cup half and half, warmed in microwave
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons butter, softened
Salt and Pepper

Boil the potatoes in a large pot of water until fork tender, 20 minutes or so. Drain and return to pot. Mash potatoes along with garlic, half and half, cream cheese, and butter. Season with salt and pepper.
