Thanksgiving Dinner would not be complete without a big helping of mashed potatoes with lots of gravy poured over them! Here’s how you can make them. This dish calls for Red Potatoes specifically, although you can substitute it with other varieties.


  • 2 medium garlic heads
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 1/2 lbs unpeeled red potatoes, diced into quarters
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup butter, diced into 1 Tbsp pieces, plus more for serving
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut garlic heads about 1/2-inch from the top to expose cloves.
  2. Transfer garlic heads to a sheet of foil, drizzle 1 tsp oil over each head, wrap foil tightly around garlic so it\\\'s fully covered. Roast in the preheated oven until lightly golden and cloves are soft, about 40 - 45 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and let cool then press and pinch cloves out of peels into a small bowl. Mash cloves with a fork and set aside.
  4. Place potatoes in a large enameled cast-iron pot and add enough cold water to cover potatoes, sprinkle in 1 Tbsp salt. Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat, then cover with a lid, reduce heat to medium-low and allow to boil until potatoes are very tender when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes.
  5. Near the end of potatoes cooking, measure out milk in a liquid measuring cup, add cream and butter. Heat in microwave until hot, about 45 - 60 seconds.
  6. Drain potatoes then return to pot and mash with a potato masher (they should have some lumps in them).
  7. Add hot milk mixture and mashed roasted garlic, and stir with a spoon while seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with more butter and garnish with parsley if desired.
