Skip the boxed flakes and make from-scratch mashed potatoes in no time. This flavorful side dish recipe gets its kick from fresh garlic.

For a lower-fat and healthier alternative, use fat-free milk and SmartBalance buttery spread. This will cut back on saturated fat but not on flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan; cover with cold water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife (about 20 minutes). Drain; return to pot over low heat.

Step 2

Add milk, butter, salt, and pepper. Mash potatoes with a potato masher to desired consistency.
