Garlicky Mashed Potatoes


  • 6 to 8 large potatoes, peeled and cut into same-size pieces

  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed

  • Salt

  • 3 cups milk

  • 6 tablespoons butter

  • 1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated

  • Fine white pepper

  • Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste


Place the potatoes and garlic in a pot, cover with water and bring to a boil. Season with salt and cook until potatoes are fork-tender.

Heat milk and butter in a small pot over medium-low heat.
