Garlic Roasted Mashed Potatoes Recipe

My family loves potatoes and considers this dressed-up version a real favorite. Mouthwatering flavor comes from roasted garlic and rosemary. These fluffy, pleasing potatoes make a standout side dish for any meat.—Rita Wenrich, La Luz, New Mexico

"I did not really like these potatoes. If I make them again I will try chives instead of rosemary."

"These were excellent, I did not have any leftovers from Thanksgiving, however I will only be making them on holidays, there is a lot of prep time to go into them."
