    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    I don't think I've found a way to prepare potatoes that I don't like. They're all good. Mashed potatoes, in particular, just screams "comfort food" to me. When a holiday or special occasion comes around, I like to turn to this recipe just to dress things up a bit. Sounds a little fancier, but tastes delicious.

      Absolutely delicious though we had a slight oops moment in that when I went to my onion bag I had no shallots and as I had to caramelise some onion for another recipe I just did some extra in the pan and for the garlic I had some roasted pulp in a jar in the fridge and used the last of it (about 2 teaspoons) which was just enough for the 2 serves that I made which was enough to feed 3 of us and did not overpower the potatoes or onion all came to together in harmony, thank you JackieOhNo!, made for Rookies tag game.

      Very tasty, the sour cream is a nice change from milk. There were a little too many shallots for my preference, other than that it's a really good recipe. Thank you!

      Made this for thanksgiving dinner and it went over very well - they seem fancy like you spent a lot of time preparing, but it actually went together quite quickly. Luckily there are plenty of leftovers for me to enjoy - serves 7 with plenty of leftovers. I used just one head of garlic and the potatoes were lightly garlic flavored. I also used light sour cream and just 2T of butter - everything worked out perfectly.
