Reviews forEasy Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
"Too watery. The chicken broth does not add much flavor. I think mashed potatoes are better with milk. All you could taste was the garlic. I don't even want to save the leftovers--we'll just toss them in the garbage. Waste of good potatoes."
"too watery - wasn't visually appealing"
"Excellent texture and very tasty. I made with 5lbs of potatoes, halved the broth and left the other ingredients the same. Delicious!"
