Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
- 1 bulb garlic
- 5 or 6 red potatoes
- 1 white onion, sliced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoon melted butter, plus 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- Salt and pepper
Place the red potatoes in a pot of water and boil until tender. Drain and set aside. Take 2 potatoes from the pile, cut them into quarters and place them on a cookie sheet. With a fork smash them down until flat, brush them with a little bit of the melted butter, and cook in a warm oven until crispy and golden brown. Set aside to top the finished potatoes.
Scoop the potato mixture into a ceramic dish. Drizzle with the remaining melted butter and place in the oven until the top is browned. Push the "potato croutons" into the top of the potatoes and serve immediately.
