Garlic Mashed Potatoes With Attitude

  • Enough potatoes for your guests
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 inch cube of cream cheese
  • 1 baked garlic head, flesh only
  • Cream

Preparation: Boil your potatoes until they are thoroughly cooked. Drain water and with an old fashioned hand masher, loosely mash the potatoes. Now put the mashed potatoes in your mixer, add all the ingredients and beat until smooth and no lumps appear. Use enough cream to make it light and fluffy.

To bake a head of garlic. Cut off the top of the head and discard, put in tin foil, pour a good quality olive oil just over the top. Seal and bake about 40 minutes at 375 degrees. Make sure it has caramelized before removing from the tin foil. When it has cooled for a few minutes, squeeze out the flesh into the potato mixture.

Always a favourite with friends and family alike.
