All you need is a lot of enthusiasm and a great masher and blender. Collect all of the ingredients, and let’s start cooking.

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Then peel the skin from the garlic bulls, but don’t separate the cloves, and remove the top of the garlic. 

Pour one teaspoon of oil into each clove, cover with foil and bake for about 30-35 minutes until the garlic gets soft.

Step 2: 

Over low heat, add the chopped onions and the remaining oil to a big skillet. Stirring regularly; cook for 15-20 minutes or until they are golden brown. 

Remove the skillet from the stove and process onions with a food processor until smooth. 

Step 3: 

Add water to a big saucepan and add the potatoes. Allow potatoes to boil, and there reduce the heat. Cook uncovered for about 15-20 minutes. 

Discard the water, and add butter, sour cream, milk, cheese, onion, softened garlic, salt, and pepper to the cooked potatoes. Mash the mixture until smooth.

Serve the loaded mashed potato with any of your favorite sides, and enjoy.

Ingredient Substitution

Nothing tastes like some creamy mashed potatoes with garlicky flavors. But who says you can’t make it even better by replacing or removing an ingredient or two? Keep experimenting till you reach the best of your abilities. 

We might have some ideas in mind.

1. Cauliflower

If you remove potatoes, this won’t be Texas Roadhouse Mashed Potatoes anymore. Still, it would help if you tried replacing them with cauliflower. It is a popular potato substitute with slightly sweet and slightly nutty flavors. 

However, it is mild enough to work well for a garlic-roasted cauliflower mash. Let’s bet no one will even spot a difference.

2. Almond Milk

Water, whole almonds, or almond butter are used to make almond milk. It has a slightly sweet and nutty flavor and is an excellent substitute for cow milk in various recipes. 

But the huge plus is it contains less than a quarter of calories and less than half the fat compared to cow milk. It makes it significantly lower in protein and carbohydrates. If you’re looking for dairy-free ingredients, almond milk should be at the top of the list.

3. Celery

Caramelized onions give your mashed potatoes a special touch you can’t miss. But if you’re not a fan of onions, use celery instead. It doesn’t taste like onion at all, but it adds a splendid aroma to the background flavors of your potatoes. 

You can substitute 1 medium onion with 2-3 medium celery stalks. When it comes to cooking it, you can either cook it with the potatoes or fry the same as onions and then process it in a food processor.

What to Serve with Texas Roadhouse Mashed Potatoes

However, creamy and garlicky Texas Roadhouse Mashed Potatoes make them even more fantastic. The textures and flavors pair just well.

Pot Roast

Here’s another unique side for pairing with the mashed potatoes 一 pot roast. It is an expensive and lavish dish that needs something hearty to stretch it out.
