We like potatoes in our house, and this is one of our stand-bys for when I run out of inspiration. Easy to make with on hand ingredients.

This was really good! The onion and garlic taste was subtle and not overpowering but added great flavor. I did substitute about 1/2 cup of sour cream for the milk in the potatoes. I used romano cheese for the topping because thats what I had in the house and it was great.

Tasty 'taters! The next time I make them I will add more cheese. I added seasoning salt to the taters when I mashed them for a little more flavor. Very good!

We liked this is a nice change from ordinary potatoes! I had this half prepared when i discovered i only had one small clove of garlic, so i used some garlic powder and i also sprinkled some onion salt in the mashed potato as I was also short on the green onion. I used a total of 1/2 cup of butter & used grated cheddar in the topping, but think I will use parmesan next time. I put this in a 9x9 pan and baked it at 350. Looking forward to trying again with the proper amount of ingredients!
