Reviews for Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
"I really liked these, but my family did not care for them."
"This is my recipe and I have "revamped" it...rather than boil the potatoes I bake them ahead of time..I find that boiling takes away from the flavor of the potato."
"Really easy, great taste and my kids LOVED it!"
"Delicious! Made these as directed on Thanksgiving morning, then put in crockpot on low until we were ready to eat in the afternoon."
"I use this recipe, but do not add the milk, salt, or pepper. It is wonderful without it and the cream cheese makes it very creamy. I always get asked to bring these along to Holiday gatherings."
