  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8 inch square baking dish.
  2. Place garlic in small ovenproof bowl, and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 30 minutes, or until very soft. Cool and peel the garlic, and reserve the oil.
  3. Boil potatoes and yams in a large pot of salted water until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup liquid.
  4. Place potatoes and yams in a large bowl with milk, butter, rosemary, garlic, and reserved olive oil. Mash to desired consistency, adding reserved cooking liquid as needed. Mix in 1/4 cup cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  5. Bake until heated through and golden on top, about 45 minutes.

Deliciously different! I didn't add the garlic cloves to the potatoes since the garlic was a little charred; I just added the garlic-infused oil which gave it a nice, subtle garlic flavor. Wil...

Not a fan of yams or sweet potatoes (not even regular potatoes) and I loved them! Really tasty and I believe the secret is in the roasted garlic! My family loved them. I didn’t add the water fro...

I thought this recipe could be tweeked somewhat to incorporate the flavors better, but my husband really liked it. I'm not a big rosemary fan, but loved the texture and garlic flavor of this re...

Update/Edit: Only 4 stars due to cooking method (would give 4-1/2 if I could). I steam the sweet potatoes on their own so they aren't watery. I mash the white potatoes with the milk/butter + a l...

I loved these potatoes. What a nice change from sweet potatoes with all the butter and sugar. I used chives instead of rosemary. I also boiled the garlic cloves with the potatoes instead of r...

Yummy, yum, yum, yum! Excellent recipe! I can't believe anyone gave a bad review! My family loved it...even my picky 14 year old! One bit of advice for those people who made a short cut on the g...

I altered the recipe by microwaving the potatoes in their skins (baked them), peeled them, and mashed them up in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Also used jarred garlic. I reheated the...

These are the best mashed potatoes. It is easy to do, because you can do it in steps, not all at once. I didn't change a thing, but have never had to use the reserve cooking liquid from the pota...
