This creation is a result of what I had on hand at the moment, and the need to get at least one dish out of the way before the main meal needed to be started. It was very well received, and I plan to make it again later this month for Thanksgiving. This time I had roasted garlic in a jar that I wanted to use up, but I prefer to roast my own, which is way easier than it sounds. I use my Recipe #412117 recipe when I make it homemade. Making the mashed potatoes ahead of time is a huge time-saver for holidays or other gatherings!
