Garlic Whipped Potatoes
I really, really, really love mashed potatoes. If I had a bowl of mashed potatoes in front of me, I would die happy (after I consumed them, of course). Super easy and they have great flavor!
- bag of potatoes (I used Russett)
- garlic, to taste (either powdered or fresh garlic in a garlic press)
- green onions, diced
- sour cream
- salt and pepper (I did not add pepper in this batch since my boyfriend is not a fan of pepper)
- In a large pot, begin to boil water. While the water starts to boil, peel the potatoes.
- My “rule of thumb” for making potatoes is peel two potatoes per guest. If there are 4 people, I will peel 8 potatoes. I do this mainly so that we’re not short any potatoes and there is almost always left overs. YUM.
- After peeling each potato, cut them in fourths and add them into the pot of water.
- Boil the potatoes until a fork can poke the potato and won’t pull the potato with it or might slightly break apart the potato. Essentially, until the potato feels soft.
- When you feel they are the right consistency, drain the potatoes and put them in a mixing bowl.
- Add about half a stick of butter (or to taste) and the sour cream. I used about 3/4 of a 16oz container of sour cream. Again, these are all measurements to taste. Add your pressed or powdered garlic to the mixture. Blend until well combined.
- Dice up green on and mix into the potatoes and add some to the top for garnish. Enjoy!
