This recipe is based on one from Mr. Food. Originally you are to discard the garlic, but personally, its my favorite part to eat, it gets brown and crispy. Yumm.

Oh, these were lovely! I think I cut them a little small, so they verged on crunchy, and I didn't have to cook them as long as suggested, but super yum! love all the garlic.. of course I left it in, ha ha! Thanks Kim, lovely recipe! Made for Lucky 13 vegetarian swap

So easy to make and they have great flavor. I used baby red potatoes instead of chopping bigger ones. I love the garlic too! Who in their right mind would take it out? :o)

I keep trying every variation of this recipe I find. LOVE your rendition. Slicing the garlic gives it a different taste than mincing or crushing. Instructions were clear and easy to follow and worked perfectly.
