Comfort food can be healthy!!! this is Low in trans fats. Nutritional facts for the mayo dressing is here http://www.smartbalance.com/MayonnaiseFamily.aspx. Do make the whole recipe even if you don't have 20 to serve. You can top a Shepherd’s Pie, add it to soup for a gluten free thickener, croquettes, add to a bread dough recipe, stuff them in a meatloaf, pan fry them for breakfast.......

Amazing flavor. I think that it's very possible that I may never make mashed spuds any other way from now on. They are creamy and so full of flavor that not a drop of butter is needed or even wanted. These would be great with any meal from a simple dinner for the family to the Thanksgiving and Christmas extravaganza's. Thank you so much Rita.
This was good for DH, DD (toddler) and I. I roasted the garlic as per How to Roast Garlic. I used yellow potatoes out of preference and extra virgin olive oil. I used sea salt for the salt. The directions do not say when to add the mayonnaise so I tried it without and it was very good then I added Helmans Olive oil mayonnaise to be soy free and wish I didnt as I liked the taste better without it. I served this with a homemade gravy, Moroccan Chicken Kebabs, a cucumber salad garnished with pomegranate seeds & Honey-Tahini Salad Dressing. The potatoes were the star of the meal along with the gravy. But we still liked Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes - the Best You've Ever Had more. So I dont think I will make these again.
We love these. You would never know they are lower in fat. They are so flavorful and delicious. Thanks for sharing.
