    Wow, Chef Buggsy Mate, wow. I loved these beautiful tasty potatoes, they were light and fluffy. My garlic hating dh even enjoyed them. They were perfect, quick and easy to make, with a lovely flavor from the garlic, butter and parmesan cheese. I used parmesan flakes for an extra decadent treat. Seasoned with coarse sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, they were the bomb. I could have eaten them alone for dinner, they were that good. Thanks so much for sharing a new family favorite, again. I have added these to my Favorites Cookbook for 2012. Kudos.

    we really enjoyed these. I left the garlic in when i mashed to potatoes not sure whether i was suppose to or not as it doesn't say. I also peeled my taters as someone in my household does not like skins :) These were fantastic for a change. thanks heaps Made for RECIPE SWAP #24 - January 2009

    Very tasty and easy to do. I might even add more garlic next time. I forgot to put the butter in when called for, so just put it on top of the potatoes to melt in the serving bowl. Made for Best of 2012 game.

    Made and reviewed for the Zaar swap #17 June 2007. I found nothing special about these spuds, sorry. The flavours were too mild to make a difference.


I am blessed with a wonderful dh and four fantastic, crazy children. I am a stay at home mom who works from son up till son down. My favorite cookbook is not one that I cook with very often, it actually sits on top of my pantry propped up in an old basket. The cookbook was given to my grandmother just prior to her marriage to my grandfather and it has the family prayer and some recipes that my great-grandmother penned in her own hand inside. It is called All About Home Baking. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src="">
