Tried 04/12/2011 - My husband is not a big fan of garlic, so I erred a little bit in trying to make this recipe to his liking... Rather than using fresh garlic, I used garlic powder (and way too much of it for the reduced amount of potatoes I used). I just read that when subsituting garlic powder for cloves, to use 1/8 t. per clove (why I didn't look into that BEFORE tossing in a full t. is beyond me). So mine came out with a very strong garlic flavor. I personally still liked them, but my husband was NOT a fan. I'll try them again in the future, but if I use garlic powder again, I'll cut back on it for a more subtle flavor.
I also seemed to have trouble with the consistency; normally I have no trouble whipping my potatoes with an electric mixer, so I'm not sure if my potatoes were a little too firm yet, or if the recipe just needed more "wet" ingredients. I ended up adding extra butter, a little milk, and even some sour cream to get them to the conistency we like.
