Kiss Me Not Mashed Potatoes

Garlic is what gives these mashed potatoes an extra kick. You can leave it out, but why would anyone wan to do a thing like that. (courtesy of Church Ladies Celestial Suppers and Sensible Advice)

Makes 4 servings

4 large white potatoes
6 cloves garlic
1 ( 3-ounce) package cream cheese
1/4 cup half and half (or more if desired for a creamer texture)
Salt, pepper, and hot sauce to taste

Wash and quarter the potatoes. Leave skins on for extra flavor. Bring 5 quarts of water to a rolling boil and add the potatoe and the garlic. Cook the pototes until they break apart when tested with a fork. Drain in a colander set over the hot pot, so all the water is out of the cooked potatoes and garlic. Drain the pot. Return the potatoes and garlic to the pot and add the cream cheese. Mash with a potato masher. Add the half-and-half and continue mashing. Leave a few lumps so everyone will know that your mashed potatoes are homemade. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and hot sauce.
