Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
For this year's Thanksgiving dinner, one of my relatives hinted that we should make garlic mashed potatoes as opposed to the plain version. So, low and behold, I found this recipe. The ingredients were simple, but perfect. I completely forgot to drizzle the garlic with the olive oil, but it's okay. Another thing I did differently was that I microwaved the potatoes using the baked potatoes option on the machine (some microwave ovens have that option), which helps when one of your family members is an 11-month-old baby that requires a lot of supervision. Now, one of the biggest mistakes that many people make when preparing mashed potatoes is that there's not enough salt and pepper. It's very important to make sure your potatoes are seasoned properly so that they don't taste bland. Notice that the recipe reads, "salt and pepper to taste". With that said, taste your potatoes before you place them out on the table to serve. If they taste dry, add a little more milk and butter to your recipe. Otherwise, this recipe is absolutely superb. My family (including myself) loved these mashed potatoes, and it's definitely one that's being entered into my recipe book. :)
