Roasted Garlic and Chive Mashed Potatoes by Mooshu Jenne

About a month ago, my husband and I tried a new restaurant that we both feel in love with. I have some of their roasted garlic mashed potatoes and it was this challenge to replicate something close to them at home.

That and I think my craving for mashed potatoes had something to do with the fact that I knew Thanksgiving is on it’s way. Mashed potatoes and rolls are the killer side dish for me at Thanksgiving. Do you have a killer side dish?
