    WOW. This is really over the top with garlic. I love garlic, but even though I cut the amount in half it was just overwhelming. Next time I will only roast 3 or 4 cloves for this recipe.

    I ended up putting Mrs. Dash in these because they were not very flavorful. Maybe as a side dish for Thanksgiving under some gravy, or as a side with a juicy beef, but these potatoes don't stand up on their own.

    This recipe was good, but a little bland. I added more pepper, and a tablespoon of Olivio (coudn't help it, but at least it was only a little and it was olivio and not butter). I used a huge head of garlic so that helped us the flavor a lot. All in all this was a good recipe and I will make it again. I served it with Beef provencal, and the juice was really good with the potatoes. I also served with a whole wheat baguette. I roasted another head of garlic, mixed that into some olive oil, lots of herbs and spices and a touch of balsamic vinegar to make a delicious healthy spread for the bread.

    Nothing too special, but perfect to have with chicken or turkey gravy. Just enough garlic flavor.

    Way too garlicky, and I love garlic. Not enough other flavor. I'd do half the garlic and add onion and your favorite herb if you are trying this.

    It tasted good but I think I may have gone amiss somewhere...Maybe I didn't have enough garlic? I used skim milk so that may have been a problem too. Just a little bland for me. I will make it again and see if the flavor improves.
