  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Cut the top off the head of garlic, drizzle with olive oil, wrap it in aluminum foil, and roast it in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the cloves are soft and golden.
  3. While the garlic is roasting, peel and chop the potatoes into chunks.
  4. Boil the potatoes in salted water until they are fork-tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  5. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot.
  6. Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins and add them to the potatoes.
  7. Remove the rosemary leaves from the sprigs and finely chop them.
  8. Heat the heavy cream and butter in a saucepan until the butter melts. Add the chopped rosemary and let it infuse for a few minutes.
  9. Mash the potatoes and roasted garlic together, then slowly add the rosemary-infused cream mixture, stirring until the potatoes are creamy and smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve hot, garnished with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
