1/4
cup
olive oil

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, 5 to 8 minutes.
  3. Add the milk, butter, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper to the potatoes and mash to the desired consistency. Top with the garlic oil and sprinkle with the paprika.
