Today we are sharing our favorite…Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe!
This recipe is one of those tried and true recipes that makes the perfect side dish for a nice Sunday or weeknight dinner. It also makes a great dish to serve at Thanksgiving or to bring to a dinner party. Everyone loves a good mashed potato. And this one does not disappoint.
