Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes

This recipe has become a fairly regular side dish for our meals. It's very simple and tastes great. The recipe calls for mixing the potatoes with an electric mixer to smooth them out, but I didn't think it was necessary.

8 medium red potatoes, cubed
2 tsp. crushed garlic (I used minced garlic), divided
1/2 c. butter or margarine
1/4 c. half-and-half cream
2 tbsp. white sugar
1/2 tsp. steak seasoning
1/4 tsp. garlic powder


Place the potatoes into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Add 1 teaspoon of the crushed garlic to the water for flavor. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork.

Drain the potatoes, and add the butter. Mash until the butter is melted. Mix in the half-and-half, sugar, steak seasoning, garlic powder, and remaining garlic. Mix potatoes with an electric mixer until smooth.
