I can certainly see why it was a gift this is a delicious recipe. Sno White and Frog Prince are great cook's and have a wonderful blog so I sure hope that you will go by and say hi from Miz Helen.

1 teaspoon salt
1 cup Romano Cheese
1/2 cup butter, softened (or use 2 tablespoons milk)

Reduce heat to low, cover and continue cooking until potatoes are very soft
Mean while, shop the garlic into small pieces. Alternatively, mince

Add garlic, oregano, salt, cheese and butter ( or milk)
With a potato masher (or mixer), mash until all ingredients are mixed together.
Garnish with additional cheese and parsley
Serves 8
Miz Helen's Additions and tips
My red skin potatoes were from my garden and they were a little smaller so I used more potatoes
I added  1/2 teaspoon black pepper to the season
I drained the water from the kettle and mashed the potatoes in the cooking kettle, then added the butter and seasons.
