"These were good, but too garlicky (and that's coming from garlic lovers!). We might make them again with some modifications."

"These turned out great! We made them for our Christmas dinner and it went wonderfully with the ham. We didn't put quite 15 garlic cloves (closer to 10) but you could still taste the flavor."

"Very good and especially easy. I loved the garlic cooking directly with the potatoes in the pot. I used red skin potatoes, kept the skins on and added parsley for color. I great hit!"
