This is a very tasty way to make mashed potatoes. I like to use Helluva Good french onion dip and use a little more milk than what's called for. Warming the milk before using it makes for a fluffier potato, imo.
This was a great idea! It added so much more flavor than using just regular sour cream. I used Dean's French onion dip and used a little more more milk than listed just to make it creamy. Also a little tip...I always just throw a large peeled garlic clove in my raw potatoes while they boil. It fully cooks and mashes perfectly in the potatoes. It gives you a nice mild garlic flavor when you don't have the extra time to roast garlic in the oven.
This was a great twist on mashed potatoes! I wouldn't change a thing. Nice to have a change on regular mashed potatoes.
These are great! This is the first time I've ever used my old school potato masher (and I was a bit wary!), but it worked. They were smooth and delicious. I increased the garlic because I always do and I also added some sea salt. I can't see that I'll ever intentionally make these again, but I would make them if I had some dip I needed to get rid of (when does that happen?!). Thanks for the recipe (and for the excuse to buy Helluvagood French Onion Dip...)!
