Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I've made cauliflower mashed potatoes before and wasn't overly impressed.  It tasted like mashed cauliflower, which is fine as I like cauliflower. 

However, I wanted mashed POTATOES so this time I mixed half and half and it turned out perfect!  It still had the texture like mashed potatoes but the healthiness with the cauliflower. 

The best part was that hubs didn't even notice.  He loved them.  Yea!
