    Kate in Ontario's Note:

    This is a wonderful recipe I found in a Betty Crocker magazine. It is a great comfort food with the added make ahead benefit. It is great with any roast or poultry dish.

      Everyone enjoyed these potatoes - I cut back on the milk & cream - they just didn't need quite that much. Pouring the last bit over top for the final baking is wonderful it forms - not a crust but gives a nice finish to the potatoes.I love doing them in the morning and then just pop them in before dinner This dish was served with steamed smoked Black Alaska Cod, Savory Brussels Sprouts & Ginger Glazed carrots The dinner was demolished Thanks Kate in Ontario 15 April 08 Made & enjoyed again added a photo this time

      I love the ease of make ahead dishes - it makes those special occasion like Easter more enjoyable for the chef! I was so happy to find this recipe as I'm totally bored with the same old, same old cream cheese & sour cream combo that I've been using for eons! The potatoes were creamy, the flavour of the garlic was very subtle, the final "finish" added to the visual appearance. Thanx Kate for a recipe that I'll use many times in the future!

      Very good recipe although I would suggest to others not to skimp on the liquid at all when mashing the potatoes because the oven dries them out a bit so next time I will put the full amount (more than usual) because when you take them out they should be perfect! Thanks!
