French Garlic Mashed Potatoes

These mashed potatoes are mouth-watering delicious! Toby likes making them for his Roast Beef Sundaes!

You will need:
Potatoes- in this case about 3 1/2 lbs

5 Tablespoons of butter
3 Cloves of garlic
3 Tablespoons of dill or parsley 
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Cup milk 
2 Tablespoons flour

Cut the potatoes into small chunks. Toby left the potato skins on because they're delicious and the healthiest part of the potato! But if the little ones refuse to eat skins, they can easily be peeled off with a carrot peeler.

Place them in a large pot of water. Sprinkle with salt.  (This helps the potatoes cook faster.)

Turn the stove on high to bring to a boil. Let the water boil for about 3 minutes then turn the heat down to medium. Let potatoes cook until you can stick a fork through the largest cube.

While the potatoes cooking put butter and chopped garlic in sauce pan.

Cook on high until the garlic is golden brown.

Add milk and flour slowly and stir it in.

Add dill/parsley and salt. Mix everything together thoroughly.

Some other delicious ingredients to add to the sauce could be: onions, chives, chicken bullion (for yummy chicken-flavored potatoes!), beef bullion, cumin powder (cumin is amazing with potatoes), sour cream, ect.

Drain the potatoes.

Mash up the potatoes. A potato masher is great, but a wooden spoon will do as well.

Stab the potatoes with the wooden spoon until there are no longer any chunks.

Add the garlic butter sauce.

Mash the potatoes more- smash them up against the sides of the pot.

Some people like their mashed potatoes extremely smooth- if you do put the potatoes in a food processor or blender. The blender really works amazingly well. Toby likes lumpy mashed potatoes though and didn't do that.
