Wonderful Bergy! You know me and gahhhhhlic so this was great. Only think I did different is leave some of the skins on. I served this with a garlic & herb pork roast and oh la la! Thanks!

Beats plain mashed potatoes all to pieces. Thank you.

Great taters. I followed the recipe exactly except I put potatoes through a ricer instead of mashing them. I also used 1% milk. The onions and garlic turn ordinary potatoes into something special. I served them with roast turkey, stuffing, carrots and green beans. Will be making many more times. Thanks Bergy.
