      The Best Mashed Potatoes
      Traditional Mashed Potatoes:
      4 lbs russet potatoes, scrubbed, peeled, and quartered
      3 tbs kosher salt, divided
      3 tbs butter
      1 cup heavy cream
      1/2 tsp black pepper
      Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes:
      3 garlic cloves, peeled
      1/2 tbs olive oil
      4 lbs russet potatoes, scrubbed, peeled, and quartered
      3 tbs kosher salt, divided
      1 cup heavy cream
      3 tbs butter
      1/2 tsp black pepper
      Cheesy Garlic Mashed Potatoes:
      3 garlic cloves, peeled
      1/2 tbs olive oil
      4 lbs russet potatoes, scrubbed, peeled, and quartered
      3 tbs kosher salt, divided
      1 cup heavy cream
      3 tbs butter
      1/2 tsp black pepper
      1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
      1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
      To prepare the Traditional Mashed Potatoes, cover the potato quarters with water in a large saucepan and add 2 tbs salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until very tender. Drain well. Add the butter, cream, remaining salt, and pepper, then mash until light and fluffy.
      To prepare the Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, first preheat the oven to 375°F to roast the garlic. Line a pie pan or baking dish with foil.
      Place the garlic cloves in the center of the foil and drizzle olive oil on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold up the foil packet and seal tightly. Bake for approximately 45-60 minutes, or until soft. Meanwhile, prepare the potatoes on the stovetop as directed in the recipe above. Drain and add the cream, butter, salt, pepper, and garlic (which you’ve slightly mashed with a fork). Mash until light and fluffy.
      To prepare the Cheesy Garlic Mashed Potatoes, prepare the garlic and potatoes as directed above. Drain the potatoes and add the cream, butter, salt, pepper, cheeses, and garlic (which you’ve slightly mashed with a fork). Mash until light and fluffy. Each serves 6-8
