Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't cook often but had a dinner party for 11. I don't cook often but had a dinner party for 11. Grilled steaks and made garlic mashed potatoes from this recipe. I used a 5lb bag of potatoes and added the ingredience to taste. Everyone raved about the potatoes. The texture and taste was perfect. I had just enough left over for 4 the next night - topped them with butter and salt, microwaved them.... even better! I am the master of garlic mashed potatoes now and this is the only way I will serve potatoes for my dinners! This recipe is as good as any restaurant! Easy to make, too! Because this was a 5lb bag of potatoes, I added a splash of water plus another 1/2 tub of cream cheese. PERRRFECT..!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have never known anything but garlic mashed potatoes in my family. I have never known anything but garlic mashed potatoes in my family. My mother made them when I was growing up but always used Lawry's garlic & parsley salt and milk instead of cream cheese when she hand mashed. She preferred hand mashing because if you are not careful with the mixer your spuds may come out "gluey" in consistancy. I have always followed her recipe but substitute fresh or chopped garlic in a jar when boiling sometimes. Also adding fresh chopped onion to the water makes for a delicious difference. I also use heavy whipping cream instead of milk sometimes to "mix it up" pun intended! LOL. I will have to try the cream cheese and chives version. Have a Happy Turkey Day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So sad to see so many bad reviews. So sad to see so many bad reviews. Someone wasn't sure about keeping the garlic after the potatoes were done cooking, I use cheese cloth to drain the water thus keeping the garlic with the potatoes. This could be why so many say that they do not have enough garlic flavor, the garlic went out with the water??? As far as how long it takes to cook the potatoes, cut them up a little smaller, mine are done in about 15 minutes, much easier to mash as well. I will agree that they are a lot thicker than ready made, but that is why I make my own, we like them thicker rather than runnier. Otherwise this is just like any other recipe, it is a guide to work with, tweak it to your liking, experiment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Hubby (who is a manager at a restaurant) kept commenting on how WHITE they were... My Hubby (who is a manager at a restaurant) kept commenting on how WHITE they were... ROFL... I asked for feedback and that is what I got! When I told him they were made with Cream Cheese he said "their good" (a man of little words). But was even more amazed that I made Potatoes from SCRATCH and that they tasted this good! I used red potatoes and left the skin on. I also added garlic powder, salt, pepper, and a rosemary seasoning blend when I added the cream cheese and butter. Def a keeper!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I made these last night and boy did I have to alter them! I made these last night and boy did I have to alter them! Too thick and too bland. First off, I had to boil my potatoes for 45 minutes, not 20. Second, if you're going to call these garlic mashed potatoes, I shouldn't have to add garlic after making them. I also had to add salt and pepper. Last, if I hadn't added about 1/2 a cup of milk they would've come out like paste. On a positive note, I liked the idea of adding the cream cheese (I used chive and onion flavor).

One thing I guess I missed in the recipe but I made this for Thanksgiving dinner, and I wasn't having all that many people, but even though I followed this exactly...this recipe served an army! My goodness, we were up to our ears in mashed potatoes! I still have a tray in the freezer. Seven baking potatoes? They must sell larger baking potatoes in my area then...

I quite often boil potatoes and garlic together, drain, add butter. alittle milk and salt and pepper to taste (I don't always have cream cheese on hand), mash by hand or with mixer. Trust me they're very good this way too. The cooked garlic blends in very nicely. If you like raw garlic, you can add some finely minced raw garlic in the mashing or whipping process. It is also very good.

I was waiting for the remarks on the turkey and ended up hearing hoe great the potatoes were. I always have potatoes left over but not these. The little bit I did have left I took the next day and fryed them up in patties. My family now wants them all the time. Thanks Kraft
