Creamy Red Skinned Mashed Potatoes
- 3 lb
- red potatoes, washed and large cubed - skin on
- 5 - 6 clove
- peeled garlic - optional
- 1 c
- heavy cream - more if needed
- 1 Tbsp
- salt for boiling
- 1/4 - 1/2 c
- 1/2 c
- sour cream
- ground pepper & salt to taste
Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes, or until fork tender.
When potatoes are just about finished cooking. Place cream and butter in a saucepan, and heat just until butter is melted.
Drain your potatoes and place in a large mixing bowl.
Mix the potatoes for a few second to break up. Then add the cream mixture. Continue mixing on low speed till smooth.
Now, fold in the sour cream, salt and pepper.
Quick note: Sometimes to change things up; I use 1 1/2 pounds russets, or Yukon golds and 1 1/2 pounds red potatoes.
