admin's picture
  Russet potatoes 2 Pound, peeled & coarsely chopped
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Butter 5 Tablespoon, cut into pieces
  Roasted garlic cloves 8 , peeled
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste
  Vegetable oil 2 Tablespoon
  Thinly sliced shallots 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)

In a medium size saucepan cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil.
Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork.
Drain the potatoes and return them to the saucepan.
Add the milk, butter, and garlic.
Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes very roughly.
They should look "smashed" and just hold together.
Season with salt and pepper.
Keep warm.
In a small skillet, heat the oil until very hot.
Add the shallots, in small batches, and fry for 15 to 20 seconds, or until browned and crisp.
To serve, mound the smashed potatoes in a heated serving bowl and top with the frizzled shallots.
