These Garlic Mashed Potatoes are smooth, creamy, buttery, garlicky mashed potatoes that are ready in just 30 minutes! Take your side dishes up a notch! Can we just take a moment to appreciate how many ways we love potatoes?
Prep the potatoes: Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1″ cubes. Place into a large pot, cover with cold water, and add 1 teaspoon of salt. Cook: Bring the water with the potatoes to a boil over high heat, then reduce to medium and simmer until tender.
Combine the remaining ingredients: In a small skillet, combine half-and-half, butter, garlic cloves, and dried parsley in a small skillet. Bring to a low simmer over medium heat, and let simmer until the potatoes are cooked, stirring occasionally.
Drain, mix, and mash: When the potatoes are cooked, drain the water, then add the half-and-half mixture to the pot. Mash until the mixture has reached your desired texture, then taste and readjust seasonings if necessary.
