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.
