Simple, easy, and delicious...and yet, I managed to mess up the recipe! Didn't read it through, and cut my potatoes before boiling them....I think they still turned out great!! In fact, I think they absorbed more flavor. I removed my sliced potatoes from the pot, and then grabbed the garlic to add before mashing them with a fork. After that, I followed the recipe. They turned out fabulous! Thanks for a great potato recipe BakinBaby!
