- 3 cloves garlic (minced)

- 1⁄4 cup milk (roughly)
- 2 tablespoons butter (or margarine)
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- Peel potatoes, cut into large chunks and place in a pot of boiling water.
- (Cook potatoes until they can be mashed with a spoon).
- Meanwhile brown the onion and the garlic in a small amount of butter.
- Strain the potatoes and place back into pot.
- (Leave the burner on a low heat).
- Add the browned onions and garlic.

- "NOTE***Please feel free to use more or less of any of the ingredients to attain desired taste.

These potatoes were OK, not fantastic, just good mashed potatoes. I think I like the flavour of roasted garlic in my garlic potatoes, but these were good with our Dill Chicken Breasts Dill Chicken Breasts last night.
Oh Nikki, those potatoes were so good. Served them with sausage and sauerkraut and they tasted great! Even better I have enough left to make potato pancakes with the leftovers tomorrow. This recipe is a keeper. Carole in Orlando
