Garlic Mashed Potatoes

These potatoes go well with baked chicken or pot roast. The Romano cheese and oregano pair well with the garlic. They have a distinctive and delicious flavor!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

2.5 lbs red potatoes
6 oz butter
3 oz grated Romano cheese
2 Tbsp grated fresh garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Cut unpeeled potatoes into quarters and then place potatoes into boiling water. Cook for 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Cut butter into cubes. Put butter, cheese, garlic, salt, and oregano into a medium bowl.

Drain potatoes. Immediately pour potatoes into the bowl with other ingredients. Use an electric mixer to beat until smooth.

Serves 4-5.
