"This is a version of Mashed Potatoes that my husband actually likes. You can use any type of potatoes and change the amounts of butter, sour cream, and milk to your taste. I like it with russets myself." — MOONHAREHAYASHI

unpeeled potatoes, cubed
salt and pepper to taste
I freaked out when I saw this recipe because I didn't know how much 2 lb of potatoes was. I used a kitchen scale, and 2 lb of potatoes is approximately 8 medium-sized potatoes. This recipe is very delicious and creamy. Definitely reccomended!
Update: I usually do not have garlic in the house so I often add garlic powder or garlic salt and taste test to see how much is necessary
Maybe it's my fault for using skim milk, fat-free sour cream & low-fat butter substitute, but this tasted too "light" to me, like it had no substance or "oomph".
This is a great recipe! The only thing I would change is the garlic... I found that adding the fresh chopped garlic was a bit strong and next time I think I'll saute it in olive oil for a minute or two just to take the edge off. Very good recipe though.
We really enjoyed these! Creamy texture, rather than the fluffiness I usually associate with mashed potatoes. I love potatoe skin, though, and it's so nutritious! I have also tried baking the potatoes for an hour and then mashing them. Also turns out well! Thumbs up!
With 1/2 cup of butter anything is good! This was a delicious recipe- for those of you not following the recipe ( skim milk, low fat sour cream etc) you should not be rating THIS recipe, you have changed it and it seems unfair to the person who posted. Just sayin....
I really liked these. I'm not a huge fan of garlic, so instead of adding directly to the potatoes, i used 1 tsp crushed garlic right in the water when i boiled the potatoes. Gives a little hint of garlic but not overpowering.
I loved these ptoatoes. Skins are great for you and I think red or yukon potatoes would be best. I boiled 4 whole garlic cloves with the potatoes. I used maine potatoes and they were good. I added more sour cream and omitted basil. I just felt like it had no place in the potatoes I served with Texas ranch chicken from this site. Yummy
Used Yukon Gold potatoes, and put some peeled garlic (to taste) into the water the potatoes were boilng in...Mashed it all together and added the rest of the ingredients...Sprinkled a little parmesean cheese and paprika on top just before serving...Can also sprinkle on some finely chopped scallions for a little extra flavor and color
