Garlic Mashed Potatoes

• 5 pounds unpeeled red potatoes, quartered
• 13 ounces butter, room temperature
• 5 ounces Romano cheese, grated
• 1/4 cup and 2 teaspoons chopped garlic (or roasted garlic)
• 2-1/2 teaspoons salt
• 2-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 45 minutes; drain. Stir in butter, cheese, garlic, salt and oregano. Mash with a potato masher or with an electric mixer.

This was unbelievably delicious with roasted garlic.

To Roast Garlic: slice the top portion off a head of garlic and remove excess papery skin. Drizzle olive oil on top and season with salt. Wrap garlic tightly in foil and place in oven preheated at 375F for 35 minutes. I scaled this recipe down to 6 servings using a 3-pound bag of new red potatoes.
