I added a good amount homemade roasted garlic in this mashed potato recipe. I used warm EVAPORATED milk and a little more than what was asked for as I wanted a little more loose mashed potatoes. This made enough for two meals; once with meat loaf last night and with stew tonight. We loved these mashed potatoes!

This was really good. However, I did not add the milk or sour cream as it would have made the potatoes way too watery. The were the perfect texture with just the butter and cream cheese. Thanks for posting the recipe

So easy and delicious. Definitely a repeat recipe.

So simple, yet oh so good! These mashed potatoes are creamy, rich and delicious - comfort food at it's best! And, while you can lighten them up switching out low fat ingredients for full fat - I chose to stick with the full fat version. Just as the submitter states - "These potatoes are a perfect compliment to ANY meal".

I have been making a different mashed potato recipe that produces more heavy, dense potatoes. I was looking for something lighter and creamier. This fit the bill! These potatoes were fantastic. Next time I will add garlic and a bit more salt during the cooking process, but that's only because I have a son who prefers a more salty garlicky taste. To 3/4 of us, these were fantastic. I will definitely keep these in the rotation.

I absolutely love these potatoes. I was never a potato person, but after I tried these, you can't get me to eat any other way. The only thing I would add is a little more salt and pepper. Bon Apetit!
