The Technique

Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes

Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes are a comforting addition to many main dish foods including beef & chicken & the good news is that this basic fundamental side dish is simple to replicate. Cut the potatoes into a similar size to allow them to cook evenly & add about an inch of water to cover them before cooking. This will allow for a bit of evaporation to take place. Blend the cooked potatoes & the remaining ingredients just until combined for the fluffiest texture. Homemade mashed potatoes do not necessarily need to be whipped until completely smooth as a few lumps signals guests & family they were prepared from scratch. Learn how to make this crowd pleasing side dish in your very own kitchen.

How To Make Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes

Fresh chives & parsley brighten this baseline dish instantly or add chopped, cooked bacon or shredded Cheddar cheese for more great flavor. If beef cuts are on the menu such as a chuck roast, Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes pair beautifully with a braised pot roast & a luxurious gravy prepared with the pan drippings.
