This will be a keeper! I served this for supper on New Year's eve and they were a hit! Reminds me a bit of the Potato Smashers at Montana's.

I scaled the recipe down for one Boies, my dh won't eat mashed potatoes with garlic, his loss. He ate boring ole mashed potatoes while I had ambrosia. The fresh garlic and sour cream were a wonderful addition. I really enjoyed the soft texture and the sharp, tangy flavor of the potatoes. I garnished the potatoes with coarse sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. The potatoes were perfect, served with broiled steak and roasted asparagus. Thank you for sharing a quick and easy recipe that I will enjoy, again and again.

Your basic mashed potatoes with FRESH GARLIC. Very yum! I did use more garlic and drizzled some parsley oil on top. Wow.
