4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed

2 cloves garlic, minced

4 tablespoons butter

Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Mash them with a potato masher or ricer until they reach your desired consistency. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside. Add the milk to the mashed potatoes and stir until combined. Pour in the melted butter mixture and stir until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then stir in chopped parsley . Serve warm. Enjoy!.
