Garlic mashed potatoes are high on our love list. To intensify the flavor, I combine garlic and olive oil in the food processor and drizzle it on top of the potatoes. — Emory Doty, Jasper, Georgia

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds red potatoes, quartered

My family loved this.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2013

My family liked the mashed potatoes but didn't care for the garlic-olive oil on top. They said it was too strong. We have a recipe with cream cheese that they couldn't help comparing it to even though I told them not to! But it was inevitable. As the meal progressed they liked them more and more although they never did go for the garlic-oil oil topping.

Our family loves the creamy texture due to adding the whipping cream. Great flavor as well.

MY REVIEW

This was the best mashed potatoe recipe I have ever had! They were so creamy and full of flavor and very quick and easy to make. Personally we thought they tasted better without the garlic oil but we may try to mix it in next time as one review stated. These will be a regular in our home from now on. Thanks for sharing!
