    Sue Lau's Note:

    I found this gem in a cookbook called Festive Recipes for the Holidays. Gave it some personal tweaks. Like more garlic. Can one have too much garlic? I don't think so! (Unless you're a vampire!)

      My fussy son actually chose this for dinner last night and was very pleased with himself! It's a lovely mashed spud recipe, the basil is so good, and it's garlicky, but subtley garlicky!

      I made this a few weeks ago, and while it is yummy, it sounds like it has more flavor than it does. I expected a burst of flavor, but it is just good mashed potatoes! I will make again, b/c it helps me use the basil from my garden, but it isn't super spectacular.

      I thought the basil overpowered the garlic flavor. Next time I will leave out the basil.
