The BEST Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Creamy potatoes with a hint of garlic! Perfect side dish!

On Tuesday I shared my family’s recipe for Funeral Potatoes. As mentioned in that post, we always have these on Thanksgiving, but we still also have mashed potatoes. My mom had been making the same recipe for years but last year tried a new recipe from my friend Kara that she likes even better now. The recipe makes super creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes that the whole family loves. Best of all, it’s super easy, and I can’t wait to try it for this Thanksgiving.

If you love Mashed Potatoes, you will definitely want to give these a try. 🙂

So happy to have followed from your Izea feature. (I couldn’t comment on Izea though, not sure why not.)

Oh, these dishes look delicious. I’m sure the Asparagus & Tater Toss would be a hit with my family.

Congratulations on your Izea feature Kristyn!

Hi Kristyn! I’d like 2 say that ur garlic mashed potatoes were super good. We’re babysitting r grand boys 4 a few days and decided that I would make these with a crock pot roast, veggies and rolls. This was such a big hit. I LOVE any thing garlic-y so I added more (garlic powder) when I mixed the butter, milk, and cream cheese. I had posted ur recipe onto my Pinterest board 4 easy reference whenever I want 2 make this again. Thanks so much 4 sharing a wonderful dish.

    Lil' Luna

    Oh, thank you Phelicia!! I love garlic too!! Thank you for trying them!!
