Creamy Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

After a long day BF and I decided to make a crock pot pork loin and I wanted a quick side to go with it.  I picked up the red potatoes because I knew they wouldn't require peeling but wanted a new recipe for making them into a mash.  I usually try to make my dinners on the more healthy side but tonight since we were eating a low calorie protein and just some steamed veggies on the side I decided to splurge just a little.

The heavy cream, butter, and seasonings make this taste like something special.  The sugar in the ingredients threw me off for a second but it really does add something different.  This is my new go to for mashed potatoes and hopefully it will be yours too!
