Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I realize that probably everyone and their mother has made garlic mashed potatoes at some point in their cooking, but these were so good!! Jim found the recipe. We scaled it down from 100 servings to 4 servings and it turned out great. Sometimes scaling down a recipe doesn't always work, but in this case it did. The only thing Jim added was a little bit of milk. I think next time I'd like to try it again, cutting down the butter and adding sour cream. Needless to say, we'll be making these again!!

2 pounds unpeeled red potatoes, quartered
4 ounces butter, room temperature

2 ounces Romano cheese, grated - we used Parmesan
1 tbsp. and 2-3/4 tsp. chopped garlic
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried oregano

Place the potatoes and garlic in a large pot and fill with water. Bring to a boil and cook potatoes for about 20 minutes or until tender but still firm. Drain. Stir in butter, cheese, salt and oregano. Mash with a potato masher or with an electric mixer.
