Peel amount of potatoes desired (I always make 2x as much because this reheats and freezes well). Cover with water and bring to boil. Meanwhile coarsly chop 2-3 garlic cloves. Keep garlic pieces large enough that they will not come out when drained. Salt the water to your liking and boil potatoes until they are pretty soft.

Drain well and mash well leaving the garlic pieces in the potatoes (they will disappear as you mash). Add liquid (skim milk or heavy whipping cream or anything in between depending on your fat requirements) and butter if desired. We liberally apply freshly ground black pepper as well.

These are so good without any added sweet stuff and the garlic and pepper make them much like regular mashed potatoes. My husband is starting to like these better than reg. spuds and he is not even SBing!

Hi

Those sweet potatoes sound great. How much is one serving? I,m new to SB and I'm trying not to goof up. I know that meat is the size of your palm but not sure on serving sizes for veg and salads. Hope you can help me out.

I have tried really hard to not worry about serving size too much. I always try starting out with "half of what I used to put on my plate," and taking very small seconds. I also try to eat more slowly so that my brain can catch up with my stomach (mostly accomplished by talking more...).

Thinking in terms of serving sizes and rules and measuring reminds me too much of DIETS and not a Way of Life.

As for the sweet potatoes, the ones in my store right now are HUGE so I usually cook 2 and have plenty of leftovers after my hubby and I have had all we want. (My children wouldn't touch anything mushy with a 10' pole, so we have them all to ourselves!)

That sounds awesome! At first I was skeptical because I like my SWEET potatoes and wasn't sure about adding garlic to them, but I'm going to try it! Thanks!

Anita, if you get a chance, you might want to re-post this recipe under the Thanksgiving Recipe thread! (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

How can I copy it elsewhere? Or do I have to retype it? Thanks for the suggestion. Has anyone tried them yet?
