Ingredients

2 medium garlic heads

2 tsp olive oil

2 1/2 lbs unpeeled red potatoes

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup butter

Chopped fresh parsley

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut garlic heads about 1/2-inch from the top to expose cloves.

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 preheated oven until lightly golden and cloves are soft, about 40 - 45 minutes.

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.

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 lid, reduce heat to medium-low and allow to boil until potatoes are very tender when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes.

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.

Drain potatoes then return to pot and mash with a potato masher .

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. .
