Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
15 mins 25 mins 40 mins 4 servings


  • 2 pounds (907g) russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) whole milk
  • 1/2 cup (50g) grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Cooking Instructions

  1. Place the peeled and cut potatoes in a large pot and fill it with enough cold water to cover the potatoes. Add a generous pinch of salt to the water.
  2. Bring the pot to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low and let the potatoes simmer until they are fork-tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  3. While the potatoes are cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Set aside.
  4. Drain the cooked potatoes and return them to the pot. Use a potato masher or a fork to mash the potatoes until they reach your desired consistency.
  5. Pour the melted garlic butter, milk, and grated Parmesan cheese over the mashed potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Stir everything together until well combined and creamy. If the mashed potatoes seem too thick, you can add more milk gradually until you achieve the desired consistency.
  7. Transfer the mashed potatoes to a serving dish and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
  8. Serve hot and enjoy the creamy and flavorful Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes.
