  • 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled, halved and quart ered
  • 1/2 cup Mazola® Corn Oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  2. Step 2) Heat corn oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add garlic and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until just beginning to turn light golden. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Step 3) Drain cooked potatoes reserving 1/2 cup of cooking liquid. Place cooked potatoes in large bowl.
  4. Step 4) Add corn oil and garlic mixture, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Beat with electric mixer or mash until very smooth. Add small amounts of reserved liquid as needed for smooth consistency.
