Creamy Roasted Garlic Smashed Potatoes

The other night, I decided I'd do something a little bit different with my mashed potatoes. I had baby red potatoes, and I had roasted garlic, and I had parmesan cheese, so I combined them all together and the results were magical. Hands down, these were the best mashed potatoes I've ever made. Baby red potatoes have an incredible, velvety texture that really worked well with the parmesan and cream cheese I added. And the roasted garlic? Forget about it. Delicious. These are not healthy, but I don't care. I suggest you try them. Immediately.

1. Boil potatoes until fork-tender. Drain and return to pot.

2. Add heavy cream, cream cheese, parmesan cheese and butter to potatoes and mash with a potato masher to desired consistency. Stir in garlic and add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!

Yum. I make a version of these a few times a month, when I allow myself those damn carbs.
