Very good. I actually roasted the garlic (and a small amount of shallots) in a saute pan, and then added butter to the mixture. Then, I strained the butter into the mashed potatoes. Not exactly following the recipe, but still so glad I found this recipe!

The best! I've done about every variation...roasting the garlic, sauteeing the stuff; even grilling it in foil on the BBQ. This is hands down the best--and so easy. Just subtle enough (depending on how many cloves you use (I do one fat clove per potato). I love them crushed/mashed...not whipped to meringue. My 8 guests raved and begged for the recipe. Used organic unpeeled red potatoes, butter, 1/2 and 1/2, and regular garlic. A KEEPER of a recipe.

A delicious garlic-infused, lightly smashed, potato. This made me realize that I have to stop whipping my potatoes to death. Made for Everyday Is a Holiday

Delicious! My family loves garlic mashed potatoes and they really loved these. This is how I always make my garlic mashed potates (except I usually add a little more garlic). These were nice and creamy with a subtle garlic flavor. I made this as written, using half-and-half instead of milk. Yummy!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

Very good potatoes! I love that the skins are not peeled and I love the subtle garlic flavor. What a great idea to mash the garlic into the potatoes! I served them with "Emily's Sloppy Joes". I usually make French fries with sloppy Joes, but tonight I made mashed potatoes and I'm glad I did.

I thought these potatoes were very good. And I really like that you leave the skins on...it just makes them look better. I made this exactly as written, and they turned out perfectly. I made these for Photo tag game! Thanks for posting!

So nice to find recipes that use unpeeled potatoes! The only change I made here was to use lemon pepper (which also has garlic in it) instead of the usual S&P to taste! I also cut the cloves of garlic into quarters, & they mashed however they mashed, without mincing them! VERY, VERY TASTY DISH, & a very worthy KEEPER of a recipe!
