My husband, Kale, absolutely loved garlic mashed potatoes. When we go out to our favorite date spot, he is guaranteed to order them every single time. It only took me a couple of times to see how excited he gets when they come to the table to realize I should be making these at home.

This recipe is one of my favorites to make as a side for our Sunday dinners. A large bowl of mashed potatoes on the dinner table just feels like home to me. Pair this recipe with my Perfect Pot Roast recipe for a quintessential family meal.
WHAT KIND OF POTATOES SHOULD I USE?
I recommend using russet, yellow, or Yukon golds.
CAN I USE ANOTHER STYLE OF GRAVY?
I prefer these with the gravy recipe as is, but you can replace the chicken bouillon cubes for beef ones if you would like a brown gravy instead.
SHOULD I PEEL THE POTATOES?
For a smooth and creamy texture peel your potatoes. If you prefer a little more texture keep the skins on a few potatoes.
