Cook Potatoes: Cook the potatoes in salted water, covered, for 15-20 minutes or until fork tender. Drain and add to a large bowl.
Make Brown Butter: Add the butter to a saucepan or skillet and melt over medium heat. Add the garlic, reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the butter begins to change color and turn golden brown and has a nutty aroma, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Strain it through a sieve. You can save the crispy garlic to serve with mashed potatoes.
Mash: Mash the potatoes with the milk, Parmesan cheese, half the butter, salt and pepper using a potato masher or a hand mixer, until smooth. I used a hand mixer to make it extra smooth. Feel free to add more milk if a thinner consistency is preferred.
Serve: Serve with remaining browned butter, crispy garlic, extra Parmesan and feel free to garnish with parsley.
