Damn Good Mashed Potatoes

It really doesn't get much more basic and simple than this!

Mmm, mmm, these are just damn good!

For 6-8 servings
  • 3/4 bag of potatoes (I used red and left the peels on)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • butter - about 1/2 stick
  • milk - about 1/2 a cup
  • sour cream - about 1/2 a cup
  1. Clean and cut potatoes into chunks and throw in large pot.
  2. Fill pot with water about two inches above potatoes and boil until fork very easily can poke through potatoes.
  3. Warm up milk and butter so that it's hot enough to melt the butter.
  4. Drain potatoes and bring back to pot.
  5. Add salt and pepper and press down on potatoes with unplugged hand mixer beaters (or masher).
  6. Add warm milk/butter.
  7. Mix on low - maybe 20 seconds.
  8. Add sour cream.
  9. Mix on low.
  10. Taste.
  11. Add salt and pepper or more milk and/or butter if need be.

So, so good.

I made these tonight and will stick in the oven tomorrow when the green been casserole is baking. Before I put it in the oven, I'll throw a couple dots of butter on top and hopefully these will turn out even better than they did tonight.

Cuz tonight... tonight, they were Damn Good mashed potatoes!

4/13/09 update: Even reheated - by way of the oven with the taters covered with aluminum foil after adding a couple dabs of butter - these were SPOT ON.
