Super Mashed Potatoes

2 to 3 pounds baking potatoes (peeled or not)

Sea Salt to taste French sel Gris or Fleur del Sel

3 garlic cloves, peeled

1/3 cup Freshly Cut Garlic EVOO or more to taste, warmed slightly*

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cut potatoes in half and boil with garlic cloves and salt until tender.

Drain and put into a warm bowl.

Using a hand potato masher, mash them coarsely while adding the olive oil a little at a time.

Add black pepper and more salt if needed

We sometimes use one half Garlic EVOO and 1/2 Natural Butter EVOO
