Arming myself by eating lunch first, before looking through MUG MEALS for another Taco Tuesday delicious recipe, I became very hungry just leafing through Leslie Bilderback’s beautiful book filled with over 100 creative, smart, satisfying creations. If only Bilderback delivered these yummy meals to our front doors—she’d become an instant millionaire. Bilderback includes salmon, chicken, brownie, cheesecake, various soups, lasagna, pot pie, Irish stew, and so many recipes in her yummy book, that I am thinking of ripping out the pages and eating them!! For this Taco Tuesday, I sampled a delicious mug of garlic potatoes.

1 large russet potato—diced
3 garlic cloves–minced
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 cup heavy cream

Place the diced potatoes and garlic in a large mug and cover with water. Cover the mug with plastic wrap. Microwave for 5 to 8 minutes—until the potatoes are tender. Drain and smash the potatoes with a fork.
Top the cooked potatoes with salt, pepper, butter, and cream. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring and mashing with a fork until the butter has melted.
Make this delicious dish even better by adding grated cheddar cheese. Recipe taken from MUG MEALS–written by talented chef Leslie Bilderback.
