Great recipe! I used Yukon gold potatoes and it was a hit. Best mashed pototoes I've ever had and the cream cheese is the secret!

These are delicious! The garlic taste is subtle, but not overwhelming....the cheese adds a creaminess. My guests and I thought they were wonderful, definitely tastier than just plain mashed potatoes.

Potatoes were very good and tasty, but nothing out of the ordinary. I needed to add more milk than was called for.
