Excellent and Delicious!

This is a deliciously simple recipe. Assemble ingredients ahead to make the final prep even easier. I substituted roasted granulated garlic for the fresh. I halved the recipe and still have enough for another meal!

I like the addition of parmesan cheese. I choose to add minced garlic after the potatoes were cooked and drained.

Be very careful to not use a food processor to mix these. I made mistake and ended up with wallpaper paste. Otherwise, easy to make.

Yes, this is the way we love our taters, too. Only I roast the garlic before instead of boiling it with the potatoes. The flavor is so good!

Very good and creamy. I am making this to go with our Christmas Prime Rib. I'll be adding even more garlic though.

I had to use a bit more milk but had a great flavor. Will add these into my rotation.

This is my favorite mashed potato recipe, and I use it a lot for potluck when I know people are going to want mashed potatoes. I made this for Thanksgiving a few years ago, and they were gone before my mom's. I also use them for shepherd's pie. Excellent mashed potatoes.
