Garlic Basil Mashed Potatoes*

Red skinned potatoes
Garlic cloves
Salt & Pepper

Wash and rinse potatoes (don’t peel). Cut potatoes into pieces and boil in water.
Once the potatoes are soft and cooked throughly, drain the water from the potatoes.
To the potatoes add basil, garlic, and S&P to taste. Add a a few tablespoons of butter, and add cream to get the desired consistency. Mash with a potato masher and leave a few larger potato chunks.

My husband is currently on a basil kick. These mashed potatoes were a perfect way to satisfy his craving.
I think these taste like the kind of mashed potatoes that you'd eat at a fancy restaurant. Sooo good!
