    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.

    Excellent texture and very tasty. I made with 5lbs of potatoes, halved the broth and left the other ingredients the same. Delicious!
