Comfort Food – Mashed Potatoes


I have covered vegan mashed potatoes, but never the original version. So, if you are looking for the creamiest, dreamiest mashed potatoes, look no further. Here they are! You will need:

7 – 8 medium potatoes (I used russet)

6 cups of water

1 stick (8 Tbsp.) butter

1 cup sour cream

1 tsp. granulated onion

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

Peel, rinse and slice the potatoes thinly. Add into a large pot along with the water. Bring mixture to a boil and then turn down heat to simmer potatoes until fully cooked (about 20 minutes or until a knife goes through potato with no resistance.)

Drain the water from the potato pot and add the butter, sour cream, granulated onion, salt, and pepper. Mash together with a potato masher until well combined and smooth. Enjoy!

Mash well!
