Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Increase the amount as much as you'd like! These freeze well for later! All you need to do is thaw, heat and stir! 

5 medium potatoes
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large garlic clove (with all the segments)

Roast the garlic in a small covered ovenproof container with the olive oil for approximately 1 hour at 350 degrees. Roasting the garlic clove removes the strong odor and adds wonderful flavor to the olive oil. Peel and crush the roasted garlic. Cook the potatoes, mash, and add the crushed, roasted garlic and olive oil. Add butter and milk as needed. Freeze in casseroles. When ready to use, thaw, heat and stir!
