Everyday Rosemary Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Rosemary garlic mash potatoes are so easy to make and are superb. They can take a normal Sunday night chicken dinner and make it into a sumptuous meal. The rosemary garlic potatoes compliment the Sunday night thyme chicken dinner in an absolutely indescribable way. It is mouthwatering explosion of delight when combining the rosemary garlic potatoes with the thyme chicken dinner. The combination just makes your taste buds pop.
So of course I had to try it with the Thanksgiving holiday Turkey. I was not certain it would work. After all I do not use thyme on Turkey. But the potatoes are so easy to make and taste like they are a sophisticated side dish.

Just Add Roasted Clove of Garlic
Rosemary garlic potatoes are my favorite. They are a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving table. Rosemary works well with poultry seasons as they complement each other. And the garlic adds a unique flavor and sophisticated flavor to your mash potatoes which will be a sumptuous treat for your guests.
What if you only have access to dried rosemary? I highly recommend growing your own fresh herbs. They are far superior to anything you can purchase at the store. However, not everyone has access to fresh herbs. If you must use dried use less rosemary as the flavor of dried rosemary will overwhelm your palate. Conversely, fresh rosemary can be used generously without over powering the meal.
What about a trial run before the holidays? Yes, I think it is important to perfect this recipe before Thanksgiving or the Holidays. You want to perfect these potatoes and gear them towards your palate. So I always recommend making new recipes once before the actual holiday. So yes, a trial run is exceptionally important when making a new recipe before a holiday.
I hope you try Rosemary garlic potatoes, I hope you and your family love them as much as my family enjoys them during the holidays.
