I truly loved this! I'll be trying heating up my milk. I usually boil my potatoes in a broth, skin on with tiny onions and I prefer Gold potatoes. I think I'll try adding the onions with the milk and garlic... and strain the milk like you did. Thank you! And I found out about ricers! Game changer lol.
