Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot and add enough cold water to cover them. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat and let the potatoes simmer until they are fork-tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the heavy cream and bring the mixture to a simmer. Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside.
  3. Drain the potatoes well and return them to the pot. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher or an electric mixer on low speed. Gradually add the garlic-cream mixture, stirring until the potatoes are smooth and creamy.
  4. Stir in the chopped parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the mashed potatoes immediately, garnished with additional parsley if desired.

Tips and Tricks:

  • For an extra boost of flavor, add a cup of grated parmesan cheese to the mashed potatoes along with the parsley.
  • To make the dish vegetarian, use vegetable broth instead of heavy cream.

Nutritional Information:


Substitution Options:

  • For a lighter version, substitute the heavy cream with low-fat milk or a dairy-free milk alternative such as almond or oat milk.
  • Instead of russet potatoes, try using Yukon Gold or red potatoes for a slightly different flavor and texture.

Wine Pairing:

Pair this dish with a medium-bodied white wine, such as a Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc, to complement the creamy flavors and balance the garlic notes.
