Very good. I used a little less fresh rosemary and a little less roasted garlic than called for. Also, I used red potatoes and didn't peel them. Even with these changes the mashed potatoes were a hit!
Very yummy! Roasting the garlic really gives these tremendous flavour. I didn't have yukons either, and had to rub my garlic with canola oil as I was out of olive. They were delicious, and I will certainly be making them again. Thanks RecipeNut!
This was delicious! It made a wonderful side dish. I used Idaho potatoes, but will use yukon next time! Thanks Recipenut!
