Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are a comforting addition to many of our favorite main dish foods. Country fried steak, meatloaf & fried chicken pair perfectly with the popular icon. This classic, easy side can be made by following my step by step instructions. They’re certainly simple but good.

Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes
makes 6 servings 

Bring 2 pounds of peeled baking potatoes cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces to a boil in a 3-quart saucepan over High heat. Once the water comes to a boil, start the timer. Cook the potatoes for about 20 minutes or until fork tender. Drain. Return the potatoes to the saucepan & place them back over the heat for just a few seconds so that any excess steam evaporates. Add a 1/2 of a cup of sour cream, 2 Tbsp of butter, a generous sprinkle of kosher salt & freshly ground pepper to taste. Let it sit for a moment so the butter begins to melt & break up the potatoes with a dinner fork. Stir until fluffy.

How To Make Mashed Potatoes

Fresh chives & parsley brighten this baseline dish instantly. Add chopped, cooked bacon or shredded cheese for more great flavor. Follow my instruction for perfect results every time.

Cutting the potatoes into similar sizes will allow them to cook evenly. Add about an inch of water to cover the potatoes before cooking them. This will allow for a bit of evaporation to take place. Mix the cooked potatoes & the remaining ingredients just until combined for the fluffiest texture. They may be prepared with light sour cream, if desired, & will be just as tasty.
