Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

As I am sure I have stated by now, I love potatoes in all their beautiful forms. I also love how delicious they are when you incorporate roasted garlic, which are the most beautiful, golden, delicious, little nuggets in the whole world. Try out these roasted garlic mashed potatoes the next time you need a side dish. This recipe is a Hannah recipe, so the measurements aren’t precise, so use your judgment, be a chef.


  • 3-4 Potatoes, peeled if you’d like, quartered
  • 2-3 TBSP Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 Cup Milk + more if needed
  • 1 Head of Roasted Garlic
  • Salt + Pepper

Let’s Get Cooking

Prep and roast your garlic as outlined here!

When you have 30 minutes left on the garlic, bring a pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, drop in the potatoes and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drail and put back into the pot.

Mash the potatoes until they are all broken down. Add in the milk + sour cream + butter and continue to mash.

Add in the roasted garlic + salt + pepper and mash until you are at your desired consistency. Add in more milk & butter if you need.

Enjoy as a side to your favorite cozy meal!

Roasted Garlic

My mom got me this ceramic pot specifically for roasting garlic and it is the most perfect thing, not to mention so cute. I am a garlic girl, any recipe that calls for garlic I’m doubling/tripling it. I love the simplicity of roasted garlic, you can use it in pasta recipes, on charcuterie boards, or just on a good piece of bread. This recipe does not require you to have a garlic roaster, you can also just place the bulbs on a baking sheet.


  • 1-2 Bulbs of Garlic, the top cut off
  • Olive Oil
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Thyme or any additional herbs

Let’s Get Cooking

Before using the ceramic roaster, soak it in water for about 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375F

Place the garlic with the top cut off in the roaster. Drizzle over the olive oil and season with salt. Add in any additional herbs that you would like, I like adding a sprig of thyme.

Roast in the oven for about an hour.

Easy, peasy, that’s about it! Eat the garlic however you’d like!
