Roasted Garlic and Herb Mashed Potatoes

Recipe from BH&G: Roasted Garlic and Herb Mashed Potatoes

8 to 10 cloves garlic
2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes or other potatoes, cut up
1/3 cup light dairy sour cream
1/4 cup fat-free milk
1 tablespoon snipped fresh rosemary, thyme, or oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1. To roast garlic, wrap unpeeled garlic cloves in foil. Bake in a 400 degree F. oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until cloves feel soft when pressed. When cool enough to handle, squeeze garlic paste from peels.

2. Meanwhile, in a covered Dutch oven cook potatoes in a small amount of boiling water for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Drain; return to Dutch oven.

3. Mash potatoes and garlic paste with a potato masher or an electric mixer on low speed. Add sour cream; milk; rosemary, thyme, or oregano; salt; and pepper. Beat until light and fluffy.

Makes 6 side-dish servings.
