shallots / scallions
melted - divided
fresh garlic clove
Boil, steam or microwave potatoes until tender, then mash until smooth.
Add about 1 tbsp of melted butter to mashed potatoes, then add milk gradually a little at a time, mixing, until you reach your desired texture.
Then add sliced shallots / scallions (reserving a few slices for garnish if you like) and mix lightly to incorporate.
At this stage, taste to check for seasoning, adding salt as required.
Add crushed garlic clove to the remaining melted butter and stir.
Spoon potato mixture onto serving dish / bowl and make an indent in the center using the back of a spoon. See photo in my post above.
Pour garlic butter into the center of the mound of mashed potatoes, sprinkle with reserved shallots / scallions if using.
