Mashed potato recipes are a must-have all year long. From Thanksgiving dinner to a regular Sunday night meal, there's always a need to have a classic mashed potato recipe. These Speedy Garlic Mashed Potatoes will get you out of a side dish bind in a jiffy. By adding just a few simple ingredients, you can turn that ordinary mashed potato dish into something even better, perfect for fancying up that dinner.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (22 ounce) package frozen mashed potatoes
  • 2 1/3 cups milk
  • 1 (4 ounce) container garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese (see Note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
What To Do:
  1. Stir together frozen potatoes and milk in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, covered, at HIGH 10 minutes.
