Red-Skinned & Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Red-Skinned & Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes Thanksgiving 2012 (Recipes to Follow)

Getting these recipes that were from last Thanksgiving finally on my blog.  This was a recipe that was adapted from a few.  The primary inspiration came from the recipe for Red Skin Potato Mash from Food & Wine magazine.  We don't normally make mashed potatoes from scratch, but these were not that hard and came out great.  A great addition to any big holiday meal.

Ingredients (serves 12)
1 Garlic head, top sliced off
2 tbsp Olive oil
1 tsp Kosher salt, divided
5 lbs Red-skinned potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 2" chunks.
1 2/3 sticks Unsalted butter
1 2/3 cups Skim milk
1/4 tsp Black pepper (adjust to taste)

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
2. Place the garlic head (with the top sliced off) in aluminum foil and drizzle with the olive oil and 1/2 tsp of kosher salt.  Close the foil over the garlic to create a pouch.  Place it in the oven for an hour and half.
3. After the garlic has been cooking for around an hour, add the potatoes and the remaining kosher salt in a large pot and cover with water.  Bring to a boil and cook over moderately high heat for around 25-30 minutes.  Drain the potatoes and return to the pot off the heat.
4. Remove the garlic from the oven and let cool for a few minutes.  Squeeze the roasted garlic into the potatoes and then add the butter, skim milk, and black pepper.
5. Mash the potato mixture until well blended.  Add butter and milk as needed.
