Servings Per Recipe: 8
"This was good, but dare I say, a bit too rich for my taste (and for most of my guests). It also had quite a bit of separated oil/butter upon re-heating, so I think I'll keep looking (if only for the sake of my arteries)."
"Made it for an office potluck, everyone loved this recipe, I thought that it was a bit too much to add in 8oz of the sour cream and cream cheese but it worked out. I also sauteed more garlic and put it in for better "garlic-y" flavor. The recipe as it stands didn't have enough in my opinion. Asked to make it again for another potluck!"
"To DIE for... I do not like mashed potatoes but my family loves them. I try to find a happy medium so that I can enjoy my meal as much as they do. This recipe does it. From a self professed mashed potato hater these are wonderful. I try to cook heart healthy in the house as my hubbies has high cholesterol. I substituted fat free plain yogurt for the sour cream and low fat cream cheese for the regularly cream cheese. I still used the butter as I prefer the taste but cut it to 1/4 cup. these potatoes were creamy and delicious. I have never not whipped my potatoes with a mixer. This recipe does NOT need to be whipped. They mashed beautifully. I barely got the dish to the table before the family started digging in. thanks for a marvelous recipe."
"Wanted a make ahead mashed potatoe casserole for Thanksgiving dinner, but too much cream cheese for our liking. Next time might even skip it and just use the sour cream and some extra butter."
"My go to recipe for garlic mashed potatoes. Turns out great every time. I like to add a little season salt while mashing. I also sprinkle a little on top for looks along with a couple of pats of butter before baking. Don't be shy with the garlic, I add a bunch and still think it's light on the garlic flavor."
"I love mashed potatoes plain, but this Garlic Mashed is so good. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a good potato dish for turkey day.

"These really are sinfully good!! I used 12 russet potatoes, 10 cloves of garlic, and added the exact amount of sour cream, cream cheese, and butter as specified. Placed the potato mixture in a 4-quart oval glass baking dish, which I had already sprayed w/a no-stick cooking spray, then I topped the taters with pats of butter, (2 Tbsp) and sprinkled on a bit of the paprika. I baked this in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes. At the dinner table, my husband proceeded to sprinkle a bit of flax seed on his taters. He said it made the taters taste even better, so I proceeded to sprinkle some on mine as well. These taters taste great as is, but I also think they taste even better by sprinkling on the flax seed. It was a great way to add more fiber to our diet. Anyhoo mama, thanx for the yummy garlic tater recipe. It's a keeper!!"
"I cut this recipe down for 5 potatoes. I did not used as much cream cheese, sour cream, and butter as the recipe calls for though. I just added a small spoonful of each. I thought they were pleny rich this way. I did have to thin them out with a little milk, and also added salt and pepper."
"These potatoes are the best Ive ever eaten!! Thank you so much for the recipe! I didnt bake them. I mashed and served right out of the pot. I only used half the butter called for, bc with all the sour cream and cream cheese it was plenty flavorful and creamy. It was actually a little too creamy at first. But once it sat in the pot a few minutes, it thickened just like the oven would do. I did take my garlic cloves out, only bc I wanted to make sure I didnt have clumps of garlic in it. So I just added a touch of garlic powder in them. SOOOO GOOD! I made these to go along with a copycat version of the cheesecake factories chicken madeira. They paired great! Awesome recipe! We give them way more than 5 stars!"
"Very good. I loved the cream cheese and sour cream in these. It gave it that extra oomph that we really loved. Thank you for sharing."
"You named these correct...they are sinfully delish! I just tried out this recipe because I have company coming this weekend and dont want to make any flub ups in the kitchen. These are soo good! Creamy and garlicy and just downright delish!! I can see these on my holiday table also! Thanks Mama for sharing another great recipe!"
"Absolutely amazing!!! Thank you for such a great recipe!"
"These are really good. I did not put them in the oven or garnish them but we all had a really hard time staying out of them! I used russets since I didn't have yukon but I will definately make them again and next time I will try the Yukons!"
"Rich and delish. Excellent garlic flavor, a real keeper. Made for Nov. Bev. Tag. I used Russets, Yukons were too spendy for me."
"Rich but delish. Thank you."
"I made these potatoes for a German themed meal last nite and the bowl came back empty to the dishwasher! I did cut the recipe in half and peeled the potatoes (our preference). I served this with Recipe #100005 and we had a wonderful comfort meal. The highest praise comes from my better half who said that my classic mashed potatoes could be rotated with these potatoes, which is a major compliment considering I am usually requested to make mashed potatoes about 4 nights a week! I liked that the little peaks that browned up in the oven very nicely. Made for ZWT4."
"I made this dish for hubby tonight and he said it was very yummy. I served it as a side dish with Recipe #242482 and hubby was happy. Thank you mama's kitchen - *Made for Zaar World Tour*"
"We really liked these potatoes. DH requested to try these and to have them with your Recipe #132765 as part of his father's day meal. So thanks for doing half the cooking! ;) The only change I would've made would've been to use less cream cheese (almost tasted like too much of a good thing with all the cream flavor. lol), but that's just our preference. Thanks!"
