The recipe was very easy to make, and it came out cheesy, creamy and super smooth. We added 1 tablespoon of garlic powder as well, which made the mashed potatoes deliciously garlicky. You can add parsley or whatever your favorite herbs or seasonings to enhance the flavor.

These are by far the best mashed potatoes I have ever had. They are wonderful because you can make several days in advance thus doing away with the hustle and bustle of the last minute prep.
