MY REVIEW

"My daughter and I made these for Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone loved them. We doubled the recipe because we were serving a crowd and wanted leftovers. We added more than double garlic to the water when boiling the potatoes, then removed some before we mashed them - didn't want the garlic flavor to overpower. They tasted great, had an appealing look, and went well with gravy."

"I'm the mashed potato maker in my family and with a few modifications these are some of the best I've ever had! Absolutely delicious! We are garlic lovers so I tripled the garlic, did half butter and half pure olive oil, added a little extra salt(I only use sea salt), 1-2 teaspoons each of basil and chives, and added pepper to taste. Tried with and w/o gravy and wonderful either way, although gravy tends to mask the terrific blend of flavors. Highly recommended and super easy!! 5 stars all the way!"
