  1. quick question: not familiar with”refrigerated garlic mash potatoes”….where can i find them or can i just substitute the boxed mix ?

    • They are usually over in the meat section. Bob Evans is the brand I has seen the most. The boxed mix, doesn’t do well in the oven. It gets watery. You can use regular homemade potatoes and add 2 TBSP of garlic powder though.
