Rapper 2 Chainz’ new cookbook “# MEAL TIME” includes a terrific recipe for garlic mashed potatoes with some interesting instructions. While the first instruction, “If wearing a four-finger ring, carefully place it on a side table before starting to cook” is sound advice; I’m sure you can make and serve the dish even if you don’t have a gold salt pot, a golden colander or a golden serving bowl. Step One for 2 Chainz Garlicky Green Beans is “Call Fergie, invite her to watch a movie on Netflix. Once she accepts, start making green beans.”

While the instructions are hilarious, the recipes were developed with 2 Chainz personal chef Chef Aleem, a magna cum laude graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Atlanta. Enjoy this rapper’s delight.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes
2-3 lbs. yukon gold potatoes (half peeled, half unpeeled)
1/4 stick unsalted butter
1 c. heavy cream
3 T. minced garlic
3 T. sour cream
Handful of chopped parsley
Kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder

If wearing a four-finger ring, carefully place it on a side table before starting to cook

Cut potatoes into quarters add butter with the mixture; Place potatoes in a pot of salted, cold water, and bring to a boil; Let potatoes boil vigorously until they are fork-tender

While potatoes are boiling, pour heavy cream, minced garlic, salt and pepper into small gold sauce pot, add butter with the mixture, and bring mixture to a boil

Strain potatoes through golden colander, and place in a separate golden bowl; Once this is done, play “Feds Watching” and celebrate the good times you had this year

Once done with that, add sour cream and half of the chopped parsley to the potatoes; Slowly add the heated cream mixture to the potatoes while whisking, creating a creamy, smooth consistency; Adjust flavor with salt, pepper, and/or garlic powder; Serve in gold bowl and garnish with remaining parsley
