Roasted-Garlic Mashed Potatoes

A simple recipe for perfect mashed potatoes.
- 4 pounds red potatoes, boiled until fork-tender and drained, hot
- 4 tablespoons salted butter
- 1/2 cup heavy cream (or more if potatoes are dry)
- 2 to 3 heads garlic, wrapped in foil and roasted in the oven at 350F for 45 minutes until tender
- Salt and pepper
- Whip the potatoes and butter in a large bowl. Add the cream after the butter has melted. You may need a little more or less cream, depending on how wet or dry your potatoes are after draining and whipping them.
