Browned Butter and Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Servings 10 servings


  • 6 medium red potatoes scrubbed clean, and diced (about 5 cups, cubed potatoes)
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup milk, or more for creamier potatoes
  • salt & pepper, to taste


  • Boil diced potatoes for 15 minutes or until fork tender. Drain and set aside in a large bowl.
  • In a saucepan, melt butter. Cook until golden brown, about 6 minutes on medium heat. Add the minced garlic as the butter is starting to brown so that neither the butter nor the garlic, burns. Remove from heat and add to the cooked potatoes.
  • Mash potatoes with a hand held potato masher, and add milk, salt, and pepper, until desired texture and taste. Enjoy!
