If you are looking for the creamiest, most delicious garlic mashed potatoes, then you have come to the right spot! These are the best mashed potatoes you will ever make, and they are so incredibly simple! I make them quite often, and they are always gobbled up.

I used red skinned potatoes in this recipe because they are one of the best kinds for mashing. If you choose to use a different type of potato then I would recommend peeling them, but red skinned potatoes are delicious when mashed with their skins on. Serve these mashed potatoes as a side to your favorite meat and veggie dishes for a superb addition to any meal!
