      These are great potatos, however I would like to share a easy way to do roast garlic. Just slice the top of the whole head off just enough to expose the cloves inside. Drizzle the head with olive oil, then wrap in foil. Cook at 350 for about 40 minutes. When it has cooled enough to handle hold the whole head and squeeze. The cooked cloves will come out just like squeezing tooth paste. Squeeze directly in your potato's and mash as usual. For more garlic flavor and another head. Hope you find this helpful..thank you.

      Obviously, it has all been said before, but these taters are creamy and delicious! I doubled the entire recipe and, while the roasted garlic was yummy, I think next time I would add even more. It was too subtle for my tastes. We had them with pork chops and gravy and they were PERFECT! Thanks so much for a goodie!

      I made this recipe using 5lb of Yukon gold for Thanksgiving dinner. I used 3 heads of garlic and a little extra butter, as well as some half-and-half for mashing. I don't have a ricer, so I just used a hand mixer instead. These have a really wonderful flavor. The garlic is subtle but flavorful, and the butter and sour cream really make these rich and creamy.
