For the best mashed potatoes, boil the potatoes in chicken stock before mashing with garlic, cream, sour cream and butter.
Lots of chicken stock was wasted. Add tarragon for crunch. - 30 Jan 2016
Absolutely the BEST mashed potatoes I've ever had! I sauteed the garlic a bit to take the "bite" out of it, and to soften it a bit so I wouldn't be chomping on garlic like crazy. Serve with the Greatest Grilled Turkey and Slow Cooker Stuffing from this site, and you have one easy Thanksgiving dinner! - 29 Nov 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
YUM YUM YUMMY!! Boy were these good!! Even my 6 yr. old had seconds! Other than cutting the recipe in half and adding extra garlic (6 cloves which I roasted first) I didn't change a thing! I also made this with red skinned potatoes and left the skin on. The combo of the red skin and chives made for a very pretty presentation. Will definitely be making these again and again!
