  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan. Add water and bouillon. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain; reserving the cooking liquid. Mash potatoes with a potato masher or beat with an electric mixer. Add roasted garlic and cream cheese to potatoes. Gradually beat in enough reserved cooking liquid to make potatoes light and fluffy. Stir in parsley and serve immediately.


  • To Roast Garlic
  • Slice the end of the garlic bulb off. Drizzle with olive oil and wrap in aluminum foil. Roast in a 400 degrees F oven for 45-50 minutes or until garlic is soft.

This was a good recipe. I made a few changes though. I used powdered garlic, milk instead of the boiled water, salt instead of chicken flavored bouillon and more cream cheese than the recipe c...

These are awesome!

really good, I do add some butter, I had tried garlic mashed and the raw garlic was to over whelming much better as this recipe roasted the garlic. Thanks

Yummmo! These are by far the best mashed potatoes I have ever tasted. I used an 8 oz. brick of cream cheese and added a few splashes of milk to give the potatoes a creamier texture because they ...

Wow, fantastic recipe that my garlic lovin' crew really liked! Hey "Ronbrownlaw", did you by chance not roast the garlic first? Roasting takes the bite out and leaves you with a mild and sweet ...
