Chunky, garlicky version of mashed potatoes. Good with steaks.

These were pretty good. I made them for company and everyone agreed they did NOT like the taste of the ground mustard, though. I also found I had to use quite a bit more milk than was indicated and I also added a bunch of butter to the potatoes when I mashed them. I was very generous with the freshly ground pepper and everyone agreed it was a keeper, as long as I leave out the mustard next time. Thanks for the recipe!
