Olive Oil, Garlic, Chives and Parmesean Mashed Potatoes
I came across this recipe on Pintrest and it looked delicious -- you can find the original at Goddess of Scumptiousness.
-2 lbs or 3 large potatoes, scrubbed, peeled and diced large
-6 cups water (to boil the potatoes)
-1 teaspoon salt (to add in boiling water to cook the potatoes)
-4 cloves garlic, ends snipped and peeled
-1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
-1/2 cup evaporated milk
-1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
-1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
-2 tablespoons chopped chives
-salt (optional and according to taste)
|This was also another chance to use some home grown ingredients -- pardon the chive plant we haven't had rain in months.|
Remove from the heat and drain. Mash the potatoes and slowly add all of the ingredients.
