    Using a sharp knife, slice about ⅛” off the top of the garlic head (leaving the root intact), exposing the individual garlic cloves. Drizzle the olive oil on top of the exposed garlic and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Tightly wrap the bulb in aluminum foil and roast on the Traeger for 30 - 35 minutes, until the cloves are soft. Remove the garlic cloves and mash into a paste with a fork.

    Meanwhile, bring a large stockpot of salted water to a boil over medium high heat. Add the potatoes and cook for 15 - 20 minutes, or until softened and mashable. Drain and return to the pot, stirring until dry. Remove from the heat and stir in the cream, goat cheese, lemon zest, garlic mash, and ¼ cup of butter. Mash until smooth, and if you like it, whip that business up with a whisk. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with extra chives and a generous drizzle of melted butter. Enjoy!
