    Put the head of garlic on to a piece of foil and roast in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes, until soft.

    Meanwhile, scrub the potatoes and put them into a saucepan. Pour over boiling water, add salt and cook them for 15 minutes.

    Toss the crushed potatoes in the garlic butter mixture and season well. Drizzle with the olive oil.
