Reviews for Texas Garlic Mashed Potatoes
"I like the creaminess of cream cheese, so I added softened cream cheese to this. It was perfect."
"I didn't add sour cream but I added milk. It still tasted great!"
"Very nice! A crowd pleaser!"
"This is the best mashed potato recipe ever!"
"Awesome potatoes! Loved them!!"
"Wow! Awesome! Bit hit with all. Served more like 4 in my family rather than 6. I think most went back for seconds."
"Yum! Yum! Yum! I happened to serve this with a lemon chicken recipe, and they flavor complimented it perfectly! :)"
"This was delicious! I didn't bother puréed the onions, I just added them in as they were."
"Ok so I'm jumping the gun a bit! But this sounds amazing. I am making it today for Thanksgiving. so I will come back and let you know for sure. I'm pretty confident that this is gonna be great!"
"These were delicious and worth the extra effort. Will definitley make again."
"This was absolutely fantastic! I could not get enough of it and will make it over and over again. I rate it 5 stars plus but the stars did not show up above so wanted to add this to the comment! Good job, great recipe, easy and tasty - what more can one ask for?"
"i had it with meatloaf too!"
"Loved the carmalized onions and garlic. Great flavor for a different spin on your potatoes. Wonderful with meatloaf."
"reminds me a lot of the stuffing i make for thanksgiving...which doesnt have cheese and has toasted bread in it. i liked it.....good way to spruce up my leftover mashed potatoes (yup, i cheated). and as for the garlic, i used minced garlic and put it in the pan at the end of cooking the onions and processed it all together :)"
"Great Recipe, I rosat several garlic bulbs at once and store the extra in in fridge for other uses. I also use evaporated milk to make the potatoes extra creamy."
"These are to die for. They will be on my T-giving table this year. As for the wasting of electricity, you can even roast the garlic on the grill. I live in AZ and our electricity is VERY steep. One has to learn to multi-task to save valuable money on everything these days."
"These were super yummy and as for using the electricity to just roast 1 garlic bulb; I roasted some vegetables at the same time. You can also use a convection or toaster oven. I love the smell of the roasting garlic."
"To lizebrown, You can roast the garlic ahead of time with something else you're baking or plan a meat that is put in the oven to eat with the potatoes. It's always a good thing to have roasted garlic around-it's wonderful with alot of things."
"Yummy! I might vary it next time with some red onions and adding green onions to serve. I love the sweetness of roasted garlic, it adds a whole depth of flavour you miss with other ways of using garlic.In reply to the comment about wasting electricity to roast a bulb of garlic - this is an ideal recipe to serve with a roast. You'll be using the oven anyway to roast a turkey or a different beastie - so adding a dish to the bottom of the oven with garlic in it doesn't add to the electricity bill in any way! You might need to add a little to the cooking time but it will be perfect.Thank you for a lovely recipe :)"
"Why would I waste 30 -35 minutes of electricity to roast 1 garlic bulb. Electricity is too expensive where I live."
