It is the sweetness of the roasted garlic that makes these mashed potatoes so delicious.

These were really good. To save a little time I use minced garlic in a jar and put it in a bowl with the olive oil then put it in the microwave for 45 sec. instead of the oven. I have done this on another recipe and it turns out great. I made these for Thanksgiving and everybody loved them. They taste just like some you get at a restaurant.

Ok, after making this side dish many times I have perfected it. 6 Cloves tossed in olive oil just to coat. Into the broiler for a few mins., well just till they brown. Meanwhile I peeled and cubed 6 medium potatoes. Into boiling water for aprox. 15 - 20 mins OR until you stick a fork into the largest potatoe and it breaks only once. I then drain and into a bowl. I add approx. 2/3 cup of milk. I then add pressed roasted garlic. Don't worry about the left over larger pieces that are in the press. The hand held mixer will beat it up. Added a few minches of salt. Then I added 3 tablespoons of marjorine. Blend it well. Last but not least I added a tablespoon of garlic spread marjorine. OMG it was to die for!!! WOW all around!!

First let me tell you what I didn't like about this recipe. It tells you to cook the potatoes until "tender, but firm." What does that mean??? It's not like I can reach my hand in a pot of simmer water and feel the potatoes! So I guestimated 20 minutes. It came out a little mushier than I like it, so I think a time range would have helped. Also, there's not enough garlic cloves. Not much garlic flavor to this garlic mashed potatoes. I recommend doubling the garlic...probaly a whole head. Also, 45 minutes cooking in olive oil is too much. Cooked all the flavor away! I think about 25 minutes would have sufficed. And that's why I'm only giving it 4 out of 5 stars. Now onto the good stuff. I added 4 oz of cream cheese to the mix too to give it an extra creamy flavor and texture and cut back a little on the milk. I also added some garlic salt (about a tablespoon) to compensate for the nonexistent garlic flavor. I also spooned it into a baking dish, topped it with cheddar cheese and paprika and baked it for about 15 minutes on 350 degrees. It came out pretty well after I compensated for the overdone potatoes and the nonexistent garlic flavor.
