Simmering a garlic clove with the potato infuses it with flavor. Use whatever fresh herbs you have in your refrigerator.

Light and creamy -- delicious These were delicious mashed potatoes. I did not have any herbs available so I made them without. They were still terrific - light and creamy. I was worried that the butter would not be sufficient but that was not the case. Yummy.
