Creamy Parmesan mashed potatoes with perfect garlic flavor. Life-in-the-Lofthouse.comMy husband and I have a favorite restaurant we go to on date nights, and he always orders the garlic mashed potatoes. They’re SO good I usually have to take a bite or two. 🙂 The last time we ate there he asked me why I never make garlic mashed potatoes at home? I answered back honestly, “I have no idea.” haha. So I guess it was time I did. 

These Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes are packed with flavor and a new-found favorite in our home. I was so happy with the end result. The garlic powder used makes them extra easy to make and creates the perfect garlic flavor. The potatoes were perfectly creamy and the gravy was so delicious. They will be making their next appearance on our dinner table very soon. 🙂
