I like to dress up these mashed spuds with a whole bulb of roasted garlic. It may seem like overkill, but once cooked, any harshness mellows out and you're left with sweet and delicate garlic flavor. —Mrs. Jackie Gregston, Hallsville, Texas

"I've been making these for many years, but I also add chopped onions with the potatoes and garlic.

Query -- The description says "a whole bulb of roasted garlic."
Ingredients and instructions say "boil!"
Roasted garlic and Boiled garlic are two totally different things!"

"Yum! I made this with red potatoes and left the skin on. They were delicious even though I didn't have any horseradish on hand!"

"I made these with red potatoes, skins on, and it was excellent. So convenient to cook the garlic right in the water with the potatoes. Loved the addition of horseradish too (I love anything with horseradish), but would like to also see how it would taste with just garlic."

"Thought I'd do a practice run by making these potatoes before I put them on the list for Christmas dinner. Now I can't wait to make them again! Super easy and the garlic was not overpowering. Love to mash potatoes the old fashion way so they don't get gummy. Perfect blend of buttery creamy flavor. Simple was never so flavorful!"
