Garlic Red Skin Mashed Potatoes

No ratings yet
These Garlic Red Skin Mashed Potatoes are creamy and full of garlic flavor with a great texture that is both creamy and chunky all at the same time. They're steakhouse style mashed potatoes made with skin on red potatoes which means tons of flavor but SO easy to make.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 ½ - 3 lbs red skin potatoes
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoon grated garlic about 4 cloves
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives chopped
  • 3 teaspoon salt divided - 1 teaspoon for salting water, 2 teaspoon for mixing in
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  • Cut the potatoes in quarters and put them in a large pot. Fill the pot with water until the potatoes are fully submerged. Add a large pinch of salt and bring the water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain the potatoes.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, heat the garlic, butter, and whole milk on low heat until steamy and very fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  • Using a potato masher (or tool of choice), mash the potatoes until your desired consistency. Then gently mix in the warm creamy garlic butter, 2 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon black pepper until fully combined. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with fresh chopped chives.
