Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I love both mashed potatoes and garlic, so this seemed like the perfect recipe for me. People say these potatoes rival varieties some restaurants are now serving.—Myra Innes, Auburn, Kansas

    Fellowship members scarfed this. After prep I heated them in a sprayed crockpot.Instead of the olive oil, put in a stick of salted butter. Tastes MUCH BETTER. Perhaps add Himalayan salt instead of sea salt.
