The BEST mashed potatoes ever! I've never baked them, per the final step - just mash them and put them on the table, where they are immediately eaten by my family. These have become the standard for our family dinners.
I'm not a yam fan but Husband is, and he thought these were just ok. Quite a lot of work for not especially spectacular results. I'll probably make this again with regular potatoes and minus the yams. Oh well. Thanks anyway!
I made with sweet potatos instead of yams and it was still very good. Use fresh rosemary, it makes quite a difference. I thought it had a very good overall taste, but if you like a strong garlic flavor use more. My guests thought it needed a little more salt, but that may be because I used very little salt in cooking.
Thank you for this recipe. My husband and I loved it. I did not have time to bake it, so I just served eliminated that step. To suit my taste, I added a pinch of allspice and nutmeg and topped the mound of potatoes with a sprinkle of brown sugar. Exquisite with lamb and asparagus and a nice red wine.
I made this for Thanksgiving dinner...It turned out well and was a nice change from regular mashed potatoes. I sauted minced garlic with olive oil instead of using whole garlic cloves. I only used about a 1/4 cup of the reserved liquid from boiling the potatoes. It was plenty creamy without putting in any more of the liquid.
I found this recipe a few years ago and made it for Thanksgiving. I wanted something different than the traditional mashed potatoes. I LOVED IT! I made it the following year and on other occasions as well. My guests enjoyed it as well.
The dried rosemary gave it a texture that I didn't care for. Maybe it'll be better with fresh rosemary.
Made it for a catered affair of 32 people, absolutely no leftovers. Kept it hot in a large crockpot and served it with "Tangy Honey Glazed Ham" from this site and green beans. Thanks a lot for sharing!
