This recipe has been passed down for generations. It is the only way I make mashed potatoes and the only way my kids will eat them. Let’s start getting ready for Thanksgiving 🍗
- 5lbs of golden yellow potatoes
- 1/4 cup of milk
- 4 tbs of butter
- pinch of pepper
- 1/2 tbs of vegeta or salt
- 4 tbs of sour cream
Bring a pot of water to a boil.
Peel and cube the potatoes.
Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook until fork tender, about 15 minutes; drain.
Return to pot and add butter [it will melt from the hot potatoes and pot], sour cream, milk, vegeta or salt and pepper to taste.
Using a masher, mix until smooth and creamy. Serve with chicken, beef, fish or on its own. If you like it more rustic, you can leave the skin on.
