      Garlic Mashed Potatoes

      12 medium size potatoes (Yukon Gold or Russet)
      10 whole garlic cloves, peeled (*See note)
      8 ounces cream cheese, softened & cut into small pieces
      8 ounces sour cream
      1 stick of butter (1/2 cup) cut into small pieces
      Garnish: 2 pats of butter, sliced thin & a few sprinkles of paprika


      Cut the potatoes into small cubes, and place them into a large pot of salted water.
      (I did not add salt to the pot of water. I didn't add any salt to these potatoes.)


      Add the whole cloves of peeled garlic to the pot.

      Boil the potatoes until tender (20 minutes should do it).

      Drain potatoes well, then add the cream cheese, sour cream, and butter.

      Mash the ingredients with a potato masher, for best texture, do not use a mixer.

      Spray the inside of a 4-quart glass casserole baking dish, with a non-stick cooking spray.
      (You could also use a 13x9x2-inch baking pan.)

      Spread potato mixture into the oven proof casserole baking dish.

      Garnish the potatoes with pats of butter, and sprinkle on the paprika.

      Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.
      (I let the potatoes set for a few minutes ontop the stove, before serving them.)


      *Note: For this recipe, I used russet potatoes, and 10 large cloves of garlic.
      (I love garlic, and these potatoes were nice and garlicky.
      If you are hesitant about adding the 10 cloves of garlic, perhaps just add 9 cloves.)
