Russets are our potato of choice for this garlicky mashed potato recipe because they cook up super-fluffy.

Good, but I couldn't really taste the garlic. I'd use this recipe and try again in hopes of better results!

These mashed potatoes were DELICIOUS. I didn’t end up using all of the butter/milk combo and added it gradually to get desired consistency. This is my new go-to recipe.
