Garlic Mashed Potatoes can be made just before serving or up to a day ahead. The garlic adds just enough flavor to make them special!
Place potatoes in 4-quart saucepan. Cover with water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
Drain and return potatoes to pan on low heat. Add garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mash with potato masher, gradually adding milk, then butter. Stir in cheese.
Make Ahead: Spoon prepared mashed potatoes into lightly buttered 2 1/2-quart baking dish. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Reheat, uncovered, at 350°F for 30 to 35 minutes.
