Everyone loves mashed potatoes but we all know they can get a little boring. This is a great way to spice up your usual mashed potato routine. The garlic and Parmesan adds ton of flavor! Great side to serve with any entree. 
-1 lb potatoes (peeled and cut into same sized cubes)
-1/2 cup Cream
-2 tbs minced fresh garlic
-1/4 c grated Parmesan Cheese
-2 tbs Butter
-Salt and Pepper

  1.  Add cubed potatoes to a large saucepan. Add enough water to cover the potatoes. Salt the water and bring to a boil. Once it starts to boil turn the heat down to keep a rolling boil. Cook until potatoes fall apart when poked with a fork. (About 10 minutes)
  2. In a medium saucepan add the cream and garlic Cook over MED heat, stirring often for 2 minutes, turn the heat to a simmer and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.
  3. Drain the potatoes once done and return them to the same pot you were just boiling them in. Add butter and about a large pinch of salt and pepper.  Mash and add the garlic-cream mixture and  Parm cheese. Let stand for 5 minutes- taste and add more salt and pepper if needed! Serve
