First off, it really makes me mad that no one rates the recipe anymore, they just type in their own recipe. You either rate it and say why you like it, or rate it and say why you hate or, or you just rate it and leave no comment at all. It's really simple to do. So here is my rating::: I LOVED IT. Everyone in my family loved it, I made the recipe AS IS and I kept it warm in the crockpot. It was great, my whole family thought it was great, and I will make it over and over again!!

Been making potatoes like this for some time, but slight variation. I first chop a couple cloves of garlic and finely chop onion. Brown in butter or margarine, add to potatoes. Also instead of sour cream, use yogurt. Garnish w/ parsley flakes.

Nice twist! I made these for dinner and really enjoyed the flavor. Like another reviewer I added some crushed garlic. The only other change I make is, while the potatoes are draining in the colander, I warm the milk, butter, garlic, and sour cream together and then add the potatoes. That way cold ingredients aren't being added to my hot potatoes and the flavor of the garlic is released with the heat.

Kids love it! Quick and easy to make. Peels are nutritious. Very important to boil the water before you add the potatos or it will be too mushy.

I dont agree with BTRACY02. I love when people add additions to the reviews, It gives me other ideas. THANK YOU!! These mashed potatoes were great!!

I changed things just a touch to make them lower in carbs so that I could enjoy them with my family. I steamed one pound of red potatoes and one half head of cauliflower together with a couple cloves of garlic. Very good with the Cola Pot Roast also listed on this site. Very, very good.

Wonderful! It's so nice not to have to peel the potatos. It was a big hit with my family! This is also good when you put the finished product in a casserole dish, sprinkle some cheddar cheese on top, and bake until it's bubbly.

I thought this recipe looked a little blah to me, so I kicked it up a notch. I sauted some green onion and garlic like others had said, and I also added some rosemary. The rosemary gave it such a wonderful aroma and flavor! I made this to go along with Cranberry Pork Roast (also on this website). The gravy from the roast over the potatoes was fabulous! What a wonderful meal for the beginning of fall!
