Creamy Mashed Potatoes
Creamy mashed potatoes are the perfect side dish to every meal in my opinion! They are even more delicious smothered in homemade gravy. 🙂
- 8 to 10 Medium Russet potatoes about 3 lb., peeled, cut into quarters
- 1 tsp Salt
- 4 Tbsp Butter
- 2 tsp Pepper
- 1/4 Cup Milk
- 1/4 Cup Sour Cream
Place potatoes in large saucepan; add enough water to cover. Add 3/4 teaspoon of the salt.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover loosely and boil gently for 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes break apart easily when pierced with fork. Drain well.
Return potatoes to saucepan; shake saucepan gently over low heat for 1 to 2 minutes to evaporate any excess moisture.
Mash potatoes with potato masher until no lumps remain. Add butter, pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; continue mashing, add in sour cream. Gradually adding enough milk to make potatoes smooth and creamy.
Top with a sprinkle of salt and pepper with a pat of butter.
