1 1/2 pounds cubed, unpeeled red potatoes
3 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper


1. Place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan; cover with cold water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife (about 20 minutes). Drain; return to pot over low heat.

2. Add milk, butter, salt, and pepper. Mash potatoes with a potato masher to desired consistency.

Good to know:  For a lower-fat and healthier alternative, use fat-free milk and SmartBalance buttery spread. This will cut back on saturated fat but not on flavor.
