Garlic Dill Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Garlic Dill Mashed Potatoes by Me

6 medium sized Red Potatoes
5 cloves minced garlic
½ cup of milk (more if still dry)
½ stick of salted butter (more if you like it creamier)
½ cup fresh dill (washed & rough chopped)
1 teaspoon Salt (add more for taste)
1 teaspoon Pepper (add more for taste)

Wash & clean your potatoes. Use a peeler to peel the skin off. Cut the potatoes into smaller pieces. I like to cut them in half, & then cut each section into 6 pieces. Put the potatoes into a microwavable bowl & add a damp paper towel on top. Cook in the microwave for 8-10 minutes. I used the automatic Potato setting on the microwave.

Unpeel the skin off your garlic. Using a garlic press, crush your garlic. If you don’t own a garlic press, you can finely mince your garlic.

When the potatoes are ready, use a potato masher or a fork to mash. They should mash easily. If not, then the potatoes need to be cooked longer. A fork takes forever to mash, so I would highly recommend a potato masher.

Add the butter, milk, garlic, salt & pepper & incorporate into the potatoes. If it still feels dry, add more milk. Add the dill last & mix until incorporated.
