Mashed Potatoes

This Mashed Potatoes recipe was my moms.  She made the best mashed potatoes.  Her secret, a little olive oil and mayonnaise.  The mashed potatoes come out creamy and delicious.

My mom was an excellent cook.  I wish that I had learned more from her cooking and all of her delicious recipes.  Mashed potatoes were always a side dish with meatloaf, baked chicken and her famous, garlic and onions cube steaks.  Oh, how I miss her cooking.

These mashed potatoes are just perfect.  Enjoy them with your favorite protein.


2  pounds Yukon Gold potatoes
water enough to cover potatoes
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp of butter
1/2 cup of milk
3 tbsp of mayonnaise
2 garlic cloves crushed
2 tbsp of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Place potatoes in a saucepan. Add salt and water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.  Cook until potatoes are tender.  Place the garlic and olive oil in a small saucepan and simmer for about 5 minutes.  Set aside.

Drain potatoes and place in a bowl.  Add the milk and butter.  Mash potatoes with a potato masher. Until desire consistency.  I like my mashed potatoes a little lumpy.  Then mix in the mayonnaise and garlic olive oil. Discard of garlic.  Add more salt and pepper if desire.  Enjoy!!
