Thanks Barb for one of those simple recipes that works so well. We halved the recipe and after putting it all together, held it in the oven for about 5 minutes-the potatoes soaked up all the yummy garlicky cream! I should add that we used the lightest cream available (18% fat) and it worked perfectly.

This was so simple and so elegant. I added a small amount of crushed, dried rosemary to enhance the flavor and it was great. I can't wait to re-heat the leftovers--I'll bet the flavor has soaked through even more. It's so easy to roast heads of garlic and the flavor is so good. Thanks for a great new side dish!!

If you have a few extra minutes to roast the garlic for this recipe, you will be in for a real treat! So delicious, and so easy! -My toddler loved these potatoes and they even taste great the next day!
