Garlic and Cheese Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Normaone

What a decadent way to fix potatoes. I don't have these often, but when I do it is always a treat. I'd rather have these than dessert.

My 10yr old loves this recipe! When he sees it on the dinner table he actually claps. It makes me get the warm fuzzies. Yes...I am a sucker for a little round of applause over my cooking ;0) I do increase the garlic to about 4-6 cloves- we like them with lots of garlic!
