  • 5 pounds - unpeeled red potatoes, quartered
  • 1 1/2 cups - butter (not margarine), at room temperature
  • 5 ounces - Romano cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cups - minced garlic, about 7 medium cloves
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons - dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoons - salt, or to taste
  • Directions:

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 20 minutes; drain well.

    Stir in butter; then add cheese, garlic, and oregano. Mash with a potato masher (don't over-mash; leave some small chunks of potato in the mix when done).

    Stir in salt, to taste.

    If you prefer to use roasted garlic: Roast the garlic by slicing the top portion off a head of garlic and removing excess papery skin. Drizzle olive oil on top and season with salt. Wrap garlic tightly in foil and place in oven preheated at 375 degrees F for 35 minutes.
