  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Put garlic in small ovenproof bowl, and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 30 minutes, until very soft. Cool, peel, and reserve oil.

  3. Place potatoes in a mixing bowl. Add milk, butter or margarine, rosemary, garlic, and reserved olive oil. Mash until smooth as desired, adding reserved cooking liquid as needed. Mix in 1/4 cup cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a buttered or oiled 8 x 8 x 2 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes, until heated through and golden on top.
