Mashed potatoes are always a welcome addition to our holiday table, and the simple addition of sour cream really knocked our socks off. The potatoes are run through a ricer and are smooth and creamy. Then add butter, heavy cream, and butter they become velvety smooth. This method allows you to make these mashed potatoes ahead of time and pop them in the oven right before serving. Very decadent and perfect for the holidays. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
