Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes


This is one of those easy recipes that is typical of rustic country cooking, and adding roasted garlic to basic mashed potatoes really  brings them up to a new level. This vegetable side dish is great with grilled sausages, or a nice roasted chicken or breast of veal. You can also add some grated cheese into the potatoes, and you also have the option of either peeling the potatoes, or leaving the peels on for added texture and flavor.

Buon Appetito!
