garlic and caramelized onion smashed potatoes


Take mashed potatoes to a new level with caramelized onions and garlic... you'll never look back.  Trust me.   
Servings 4-6
Total Time 55 min

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 red onions, chopped
  • sea salt (or kosher)
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup milk 
  • 2 1/2 pounds of red potatoes, peeled and quartered (depending on size)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced


1.  In a large skillet heat, over medium low heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil.  When hot, add the onions and  season with salt. Cook, stirring frequently until onions are caramelized, 35 to 40 minutes, adding the garlic during the last 5 minutes. 

2.  Meanwhile, in large pot, begin boiling water for the potatoes.  When the water is at a rapid boil add the potatoes and cook for 20 minutes, or until tender, and drain.  Return the potatoes to the pot and mash up, using a potato masher, adding a small amount of milk until you reach the desired consistency.  Stir in onions, garlic, and season with salt and pepper.  Enjoy!!
