I have to admit my expectations were pretty low for this recipe despite the reviews. It just sounded kind of strange and I didn't think it would turn out with a nice consitency with no milk, cream, sour cream, etc. I was very wrong and the reviews were right. I don't usually make mashed potatoes because they are trouble. This recipe is super simple. No peeling potatoes, no guessing how much milk to add, no endless mashing with lumps remaining. This came together like magic. Just boil, drain, and mash with butter and cheese. A great addition to my recipe box and a terrific way to use up fresh produce at the end of the week! Boiling the garlic with the potatoes is genius as well. Try this even if you are skeptical. You won't be disappointed!


Wow! You definitely need a "Cowboy's" appetite for these mashed potatoes! Who would have thought of adding veggies to this comfort food classic and have it taste so good? I have to admit I was a bit skeptical, because I really do like my mashed potatoes with just the basics but this really did turn out to be a nice surprise. So, if you're looking for something different as a side dish for dinner tonight - look no further. Give this a try, you'll be glad you did!


Why didn't I think of this one before?? I got carrots, corn, and peas into my kids with nary a whimper or whine, plus some calcium and protein with the cheese. All I had to say was 'COWBOY' to my two little boys, and they ate two helpings! (The big boy had 3..) Delicious! This one will be making an appearance on our table OFTEN!
