A fantastic and accurate clone. I will most definitely be making this again.
I didn't have any heavy cream on hand, so I substituted additional milk for heavy cream and added an extra tablespoon of butter to maintain the fat content.

So delish :) my boyfriend & i both thought it tasted pretty darn close to applebees-the only thing i will differently is to make the potatoes a little more lumpy (more like applebees)

Delicious! Heavenly! They are so good that you hate putting anything on top of them! But even with gravy the taste still comes through wonderfully! I also put a cup of shredded cheddar cheese in mine. I love that you don't have to peel the potatoes. When you make these, your family will think you are the best cook in the world. Thanks for the recipe!

I made these to go with Cider-Roasted Pork Loin and they were wonderful. I am not sure how close to Applebee's they are because I can't remember eating mashed potatoes at Applebee's. The only change I made was to warm the milk, cream and butter until the butter melted. The roasted garlic is wonderful.

I've tried other garlic mashed potato recipes (not from recipe zaar) and never cared for them. This recipe is perfect. It has the perfect amount of garlic and roasting the garlic first made it perfect!

Okay, I admit I cheated on this recipe by using garlic salt in place of the garlic due to time and the recipe still came out tasting like the potatoes Applebee's serves! I cut the red potatoes in fourths so they would cook quicker since I doubled the recipe. I used a pastry cutter to mash the potatoes so the texture would be a little lumpy rather than a masher. Results were so tasty!

Delicious...one word says it all, the garlic adds great but subtle flavor. It took almost a whole bulb of garlic to get a quarter cup though.
