This is a side (( but seriously, the way my mom and sister gobble it up, you'd think it was an entree )) dish that I dumb-ed down from a more expensive recipe. We actually (( when had some cash )) tired the more expensive version and my version won through out my family.

I also ALWAYS make a double batch for two reasons: one - my sister eats it at night before bed and two - these make great potato fritters. I'll add the recipe for the fritters, so think of this as a two in one recipe.

    sour cream
  • 8 oz
    sour cream (you may not use all of it, but i like my potatos creamy, so always add a bit more)

How to Make Mashed Red Potatos with Garlic & Parsley

Step-by-Step

  1. Fill a large pot with water and salt, bring to boil.
  2. While water boils, peal (or not) and quarter potatoes. (( With smaller ones, half'em and with larger ones cut into smaller pieces. ))
  3. Add to water and boil until tender.
  4. While potatoes boil, in a bowl, add sour cream, parsly, onion, garlic, and parmsan cheese. Stir well. Taste and decide if it needs more ingriedents and finally add salt and pepper to taste. (( I always got a little heavy on pepper. )) [[ My sister says this also makes a get veggie dip or chip dip. ]]
  5. Once potatoes are done, add sour cream mixture and butter to potoates and mash until it's to the texture you desire. (( I like mine lumpy. ))
  6. Serve.
