    mersaydees's Note:

    This is based on a recipe from the Williams-Sonoma Potato cookbook. These have been our "company" or "holiday" mashed potatoes for many years. They can be made up to 2 hours ahead: cover loosely and allow to stand at room temperature; then reheat gently over low heat, stirring often, just before serving.

      This was really good! I will just boil my potatoes next time b/c mine weren't completely done and my family doesn't like "crunchy" bad. But they LOVED the roasted garlic!! Thanks so much!! Made for Xtra Hot Dishes of ZWT6.

      Delicious. Well worth the extra effort to roast the garlic! I roasted 4 med/large heads and barely came out with the 1/3 cup. I would suggest throwing in an extra head if in doubt. The mashed roasted garlic freezes well so better extra then not enough!

      As others have noted, steaming the potatoes didn't cook them evenly, so while most were fully cooked, some wouldn't mash. DH confessed he enjoyed his lumps, but I like mine smooth and will cook them longer next time. The garlic flavor was terrific and the Yukon Golds have a nice rich yellow color. Made for Aussie/NZ swap.
