This is probably the best mashed potato I've ever had. It was so creamy and flavorful. Instead of using milk and butter, I substituted w/chicken broth and cream of chicken respectively. I may add a little more garlic next time for a little extra kick. Thank you :-)

I made this to accompany Virginia Chandler's Salisbury steak with mushroom and onion gravy. Extremly tasty. I boiled cubed potatoes in low sodium chicken broth, just enough broth such that all potatoes are submerged in liquid. I left out the butter. As I mashed the cooked potatoes, I added parsley flake, the heat really unleash the aroma. I added sour cream as directed but like diamonds4heather, I omitted the milk. This is a must try.

Excellent! I confess I make garlic mashed often, but I have never before used that much butter, nor have I ever added sour cream. These potatoes turned out rich and creamy and were absolutely delicious. Very easy to make; no different than regular mashed except for peeling a few garlic cloves. I don't know if I will always use that much butter unless it's a "company dinner", but I will now regularly use sour cream!

I really enjoyed the flavor that boiling the garlic along with the potatoes gave the recipe. I did not use any butter or milk, but non-fat chicken broth instead. i think the broth gives an excellent flavor without adding much fat or calories ( I also used nonfat sour cream, no one could tell). i think the sour cream gives a lovely texture to this dish; very creamy and smooth. Thanks for posting, it went perfectly with my chicken dish and green beans last night! I will be serving this again soon.

JoAnn, The name says it all! These were Super Supreme! I made exactly as directed however, I didn't have whole galic cloves so I added 1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic from a jar when mashing. The flavor could not have been better! No gravy needed on these potatoes! Thank you for an excellent recipe, JoAnn!

We loved this potato dish. I served it with a crockpot whole chicken recipe and chicken gravy. Real comfort food. Great flavours, first time Ive used whole garlic cloves in with the potatoes. Thanks for posting.

Just updating my review from a few years back. These are my go-to mashed potatoes for entertaining and holidays. I get so many compliments and they work fabulously when done a day ahead. It makes holiday meal prep so much easier!
======WOW! These were a big hit at my Canadian Thanksgiving party back in October. I logged on again to print off the recipe for Christmas. I left the recipe as is, but just adjusted the amount of sour cream and didn't put in as much milk. Very tasty - I also steamed the potatoes and garlic instead of boiling. Very smooth, creamy and YUMMY!

I had fresh minced garlic that needed to be used up so I put that in with the potatoes after draining them. I used a quarter of a cup of butter when I made them. I was amking them for dinner the following night, so I added the rest of the butter when reheating so they wouldn't dry out. I also admidt that I forgot to add the parsley and paprika. Ooops! I won't forget next time because we WILL be making them again! Thanks!

Good, easy recipe. I make it just as suggested, but add a few extra garlic cloves. I only think that it's a little bland, but a good basic recipe.
