Buca Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Have you ever eaten at Buca's Italian Family Restaurant? Buca is fun, family style dining. One dish we love is their garlic mashed potatoes. They are delicious.
For our wedding, one of our friends shared the recipe with us! These make a tasty side dish.

Buca Garlic Mashed Potatoes - From the Crump Family
2 lbs (8 medium) red skin potatoes, washed (skin, no skin, your choice)
1/4 C chopped garlic (or minced)
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. salt
1 C Romano cheese
1/2 C butter, softened (or, use 2 T milk)
Wash potatoes and put in a large kettle; cover with cold water and cook potatoes over medium heat until they come to a full boil.
Reduce heat to low, cover and continue cooking until potatoes are very soft.
Meanwhile, chop the garlic into small pieces. Alternatively, mince!
Transfer potatoes to a large mixing bowl.
Add garlic, oregano, salt, cheese and butter (or milk).
With a potato masher (or mixer), mash until all ingredients are mixed together.
Garnish with additional cheese and parsley.
