Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Mashed Potatoes are a fairly simple food to prepare and most people have a favorite way to make them.  It is one of those foods that I don’t personally eat very often, so when I do – I’m making them worth every bite.  Russet potatoes are usually my potato choice for mashed potatoes, but I have prepared New Potatoes or Yukon Golds in a mashed form – Russets are less waxy and create a magnificent mouthfeel when mixed together.

Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes are just like they sound – potatoes, butter, heavy cream and sour cream.  We are not skimping on calories here and why should we??  I prepare the entire recipe in a pot on the stove and pour them into a bowl when creamy and delectable.  You can keep them warm over a pot of steamy water, in a low oven or warming drawer.

These potatoes are delightful next to roast turkey, baked ham or part of a vegetarian meal.  There is no doubt you will love them!

Ingredients

2 pounds Russet Potatoes, washed, peeled and cut in half

1 stick butter + 1 tablespoon

1/2 cup sour cream

1/3 cup heavy cream

salt & pepper

(Serves 6-8)

To Prepare:

1. In a large pot add water to 2/3 full, potatoes and 2 heaping tablespoons of salt.  Boil until fork tender, drain and place back inside the pot.  Add butter and sour cream and mash for 1 minute.

2.  Pour in cream and continue to mash until smooth, but slightly lumpy – I just love the texture!  Add 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and stir.  Place a pat of butter on top and over with plastic wrap, keep warm.  Enjoy!
