MY REVIEW

My whole family loved this including my picky eater. I used Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning instead of baking the garlic bulbs. I paired it with roasted garlic red potatoes. It was delicious!

My shortcut was to use Mrs. Dash Garlic/Herb seasoning instead of baking the garlic bulbs. So very good! Will be adding this one to my 'regulars' list of recipes!
