Great Sour Cream Mashed Red Potatoes

There is no room for mashed potatoes that no one will eat. I make my mashed potatoes and I serve them for dinner that evening and the left-overs become a fried potato patty for breakfast the following day. Let’s make my sour cream petite red mashed potatoes and watch them disappear from the bowl.

1.5 pounds of Petite Red Potatoes

1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 stick butter (sliced)


Black Pepper

Boil potatoes in a medium-sized pot until you can easily pass a fork through the potatoes (about 20 min).

Remove from heat and drain potatoes in a strainer

Transfer to a medium-sized mixing bowl and mash with a hand masher

Add sour cream and butter

Add salt and pepper as desired.

Mix with  a handheld electric mixer with standard beaters until the potatoes are smooth and creamy

Serve hot and steaming.

I added little fresh chives over my potatoes for the photo but I usually do not add anything extra.
