My husband LOVES these potatoes, so thought I'd share with you all.  These delicious potatoes are so creamy you won't believe they are light.  Enjoy!

Garlic Smashed Potatoes

3 garlic cloves
1/4 tsp. olive oil
3/4 lb. red potatoes, cubed
2 Tbsp. fat-free or low fat milk
2 Tbsp. reduced-fat sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. grated Fresh Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. snipped fresh dill
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
Dash cayenne pepper, if desired.  I desire.........

Place garlic on a double thickness of foil.  Drizzle with oil.  Wrap foil around garlic.  Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes.  cool for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender.  Drain.  Transfer potatoes to a boil; squeeze softened garlic into bowl.  Add the remaining ingredients and lighly mash or "smash".
