1½ cups water
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon dried rosemary 
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon salt for boiling water
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon everything but the bagel seasoning
more salt to taste (if needed)

3.Drain water and return potatoes to pot. Using a potato masher or large mixing spoon and mash until smooth.
