Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes (Side Dish)

Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes (Side Dish)

Print Grocery List Print Recipe
Serves: 4 Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk (you can use half and half if you’re feeling extra decadent)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (I love using Kerrygold for extra richness)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

1

Place the potatoes in a large pot. Cover the potatoes with cold water and add a generous pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 10 to 12 minutes, until the potatoes fall apart easily when pierced with a fork.

2

Meanwhile, measure the milk and butter into a microwave safe pitcher. Warm the milk and butter so the butter melts, but make sure it doesn't boil. Set aside until the potatoes are done.

3

As soon as the potatoes are tender, drain them in a colander.

4

Using a masher, mash the potatoes really well (or use a food mill or ricer for extra smooth potatoes). As soon as the potatoes are mashed, slowly whisk in enough of the hot milk/butter mixture to make the potatoes very creamy. Add 2 teaspoons of salt and the sour cream and pepper and whisk to combine.

5

Taste for seasoning and serve hot.
