  • 1. 3 pounds Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • Chop up the potatoes and peel your garlic. You will place then in a pot and cover them with water. Be sure to salt your water. You are going to boil the potatoes and garlic until they are pierced with a fork and very soft.
  • While your potatoes are boiling, take the milk and place the butter in the milk and melt. If you do not wish to use a microwave, you can do this in a pot on the stove. The microwave will of course be faster.
  • Once the potatoes have finished boiling, drain them and place the potatoes back into the pot (or a bowl, your call). Add the warmed milk and butter to the potatoes and begin to mash. Be sure that the milk and butter are warm. It is not good for the potatoes if the milk is cold.
  • Add salt, pepper, and the nutmeg. You can now serve right away! If you'd like, top with a heap more butter, parsley and go to town!
