What you do:
Wash potatoes well, peel and quarter. Cook potatoes in boiling salted water until fork tender. Drain potatoes and return to the pot.
Using a ricer or a masher, mash the potatoes slightly and set aside ( you can also use your electric beater too). In a saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of butter and half the cream and simmer for 1 minute. Add contents of the saucepan to the potatoes and stir will.
On low heat, stir in the rest of the cream, add the cream cheese and all of the roasted garlic.
Finish with chives, salt and pepper.
How to Roast Garlic
Take a head or heads of garlic and remove the cloves. Do not peel the cloves of garlic.
Separate the cloves into groups of approximately the same size (usually about 3 groups will do).
On medium-low heat and using a non-stick pan,put your first group of cloves in the pan. Let them sit for about 2 minutes, stir, sit for 2 minutes, stir, etc.
Keep watch for scorching on the outside of the cloves. If you see scorching turn town the heat a little and stir more often.
The garlic is roasted when the cloves are soft when pressed by a fork or spatula. The softer the clove, the more roasted the garlic.
The group of larger cloves will of course take longer than the smaller cloves. You separate the cloves so that you don't burn your smaller cloves while undercooking the large ones.
