Recipe for garlic mashed potato – The ingredients
- Potatoes – Get 1kg or red skinned potato.
- Butter – Make sure the one you have can be used for frying. (3)
- Garlic – 1 garlic clove should be much more than enough. You want to make sure it is finely chopped
- Cheese – I choose grated Gruyere (25g is plenty unless you like to increase the fat content of the recipe – I advise against increasing this). You can use slices of Camembert too if you prefer.
- Single cream or milk – 140 ml is plenty
- Dried white breadcrumbs – I use brown one, but I know all my friends use white. So I put white and I hope you’ll use brown. 25 g is enough.
- Thyme – 2 sprigs or 3 maximum. (4)
