  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) maple syrup
  • Salt & pepper to taste

  4. Add chopped garlic to skillet; cook over medium heat 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.
  5. Peel potatoes; place in large bowl. Mash until no lumps remain. Add milk, maple syrup, salt and pepper; mash until very smooth.
