I often ask my husband if he has any meal, dessert or snack requests. He usually doesn’t have much to say besides “bacon, mashed potatoes and ice cream”; which I take into consideration but definitely don’t serve every week. Haha! This makes meal planning both simple and hard. I have to do all of the meal planning and preparing, but at the same time I GET to do it all. I honestly love cooking and especially baking so I don’t actually mind his lack of opinion 😉
A couple of weeks ago I took his request for mashed potatoes seriously and whipped up a new recipe to share. I don’t do much cooking with ghee (don’t ask me why, I just have a thing for coconut oil) but decided I needed some in my life, so used it in these Garlic Ghee Mashed Potatoes. They turned out SO good!
This recipe is just 5 ingredients and easy to prepare…not to mention a crowd (husband) pleaser!
Recipe makes about 4 servings, depending on potato size
*May add more liquid if necessary, but start with 1/4 Cup
**No need to remove potato skin
These Garlic Ghee Mashed Potatoes are perfectly creamy and taste great paired with baked chicken thighs and a side salad. If you prefer a dairy-free version, I have a Garlic Mashed Potatoes recipe using olive oil and Yukon Gold potatoes. Of course, you may sub any oil for the ghee in this recipe as well.
