Ingredients

  • 8 medium potatoes
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 bulbs of garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Take garlic bulbs and cut about ¼” off the top, revealing the individual cloves. Using a muffin tin, place each bulb into the tin and drizzle with olive oil, rubbing the oil into the clove tops. Cover each bulb with tin foil and roast for 30-40 minutes, or until soft and slightly browned.
  2. While the garlic is roasting, rinse and peel the potatoes. Dice them into about 1” chunks, and put them into a medium to large pot. Cover them with water and bring them to a boil. Place a lid on the pot and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until soft. Remove from heat and drain. Return the potatoes to the pot.
  3. After the garlic cloves have been removed from the oven and cooled, use a small knife and cut along each clove and carefully squeeze out each clove.  Set aside. 
  4. Reduce the oven temperature down to 350 degrees. Add the roasted garlic cloves to the potatoes and mash both until smooth.
  5. Add milk and cheese to the potatoes. Stir well and season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread in a large baking dish.  Dot with butter and slip into the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown!
