  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add potatoes, and cook until tender but still firm, about 10 minutes. Drain, and place in a large bowl.
  2. Combine potatoes with butter, milk, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Mash together until smooth and creamy.

First off, it really makes me mad that no one rates the recipe anymore, they just type in their own recipe. You either rate it and say why you like it, or rate it and say why you hate or, or you just rate it and leave no comment at all. It's really simple to do. So here is my rating::: I LOVED IT. Everyone in my family loved it, I made the recipe AS IS and I kept it warm in the crockpot. It was great, my whole family thought it was great, and I will make it over and over again!!


Nice twist! I made these for dinner and really enjoyed the flavor. Like another reviewer I added some crushed garlic. The only other change I make is, while the potatoes are draining in the colander, I warm the milk, butter, garlic, and sour cream together and then add the potatoes. That way cold ingredients aren't being added to my hot potatoes and the flavor of the garlic is released with the heat.


Kids love it! Quick and easy to make. Peels are nutritious. Very important to boil the water before you add the potatos or it will be too mushy.
