Garlic Red Mashed Potatoes - creamy, flavorful potatoes perfect as a side dish with any meal!

Why do potatoes have to be so stinkin’ delicious?! I admit I’m slightly addicted to the veggie and would love to have them in every recipe, but alas – they’re not that great for you so I try to limit them. Having said that, when making a nice meal for our family (like Sunday dinner or a special occasion or a holiday), potatoes HAVE to be included because everyone loves them. We have loads of go-to potato dishes, but we love trying out new ones like today’s recipe for Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes. We’ve been fans of red potatoes for a long time, so we were bound to try a mashed potato version. We usually use Russet potatoes for this, but red potatoes are so good mashed, I may never go back to Russet!! 😉

This recipe was very simple (like most of the recipes I post on here) and was so flavorful. You can obviously adjust the ingredients to match your taste buds but we thought they were perfect served with some chicken for dinner. Add some rolls and you have the perfect Sunday meal (perhaps with a few healthy items like fruit and carrots). 😉 Bottom line, we hope you like these as much as we did.
