Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I found out where I am teaching next semester! And, if it all works out, I will be teaching high school Trig, Pre-Calc, and AP Calculus.  Woah! I have to go remember all that now!  But actually, I am so excited.  Plus, this is going to be such a different experience from teaching middle school algebra.  I can't wait! The high school has block scheduling, which will be new for me, and periods are 90 minutes instead of the 50 that I am used to.  Overall, I am going to learn a whole lot and I can't wait to get started!

Also, today I am sharing the recipe I used for Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes from my Thanksgiving Feast!  This was a yummy recipe that was totally simply.  Make it and you won't regret it!

Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes (adapted from Food Network)

7 lbs. russet potatoes, peeled
4 tbsp salt
32 fluid oz. half and half
12 cloves garlic, crushed
12-14 oz grated Parmesan
Freshly ground black pepper

1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and place potatoes in the pot.  Cover and let cook until potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork.  Drain and place potatoes back in the pot.
2.  Heat the half and half in a saucepan until simmering and add in the garlic.  Let simmer for about 5 minutes.  Pour the half and half into the pot with the potatoes and mash with a potato masher.  Add in salt and Parmesan.  Season with pepper and more salt.  Serve immediately, or keep warm until ready to serve.

Enjoy :)
