1 medium head
low fat, low sodium chicken broth
potatoes, peeled and cubed
warm skim milk
dried rosemary, crushed

This recipe makes the end product too hard to accomplish. Just peel the garlic and boil it with the potatoes. When the potatoes are done, drain them and place in mixing bowl. Add butter, milk, sour cream and whatever fresh herbs you have on hand ( rosemary, thyme, basil, oregano, parsley, etc.) whip to desired consistancy.
I would make this recipe again, but I think I would omit the thyme. Just too much for my taste. The roasted garlic gave it a very good flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
this was a good recipe...although not perfect. I would also cut down on the herbs, maybe to just the rosemary. Also i tried a rosemary garlic version of this where i roasted the garlic. I also boiled the potatoes with half the liquid consisting of water and half chicken broth and added garlic. Well ive tried many versions...you can always play with mashed potatoes. By far the best gravy i have ever had consisted of 2 cups of my chicken broth i boiled the potatoes in and the rest turkey stock and added chopped portobello mushrooms...it was to die for. I wouldnt use olive oil in mashed potatoes, use butter. You dont want that oily consistency.
Okay, so I don't know how to make mashed potatoes, I admit it. But, I followed the recipe exactly, and what I got was potato soup! It's clear that the recipe should say: add liquid ingredients GRADUALLY, until potatoes are fluffy. If I'd done that, I bet it would have come out correctly. BEWARE!
I liked these potatoes, but I made a few changes in them after reading some of the reviews. I did cut down on the herbs a bit and reduced some of the liquid so that they wouldn't be as runny. The result was good. They tasted very similar to what I would buy from a store brand boxed potatoes. I will definately make again.
Although good, I think the amount of milk added to the potatoes makes the dish too watery. Less is best!
We loved these. I skipped the first part because I buy the bulk minced garlic at Sam's. I do like chicken broth in my potatoes so I used way less milk & some chicken broth. I usually always use butter but the olive oil was a very nice change. I am feeding a large family so I used way more potatoes. Everyone really loved them!
I liked these mashed potatoes quite a bit -- however, if I make them again, I probably will cut down a bit on the herbs.
