These are really delicious mashed potatoes and kids love them. I call them “Heart Attack” mashed potatoes because they are loaded with butter – the excess is what makes them outstanding. “Enough” butter is my secret to awesome mashed potatoes.
– 3 large potatoes (bakers, I suppose – the brown ones.)
– 1 stick (yeah – a whole stick!) salted butter, cut into 6 pieces
– 2 TBS. sour cream
– 2 tsp. salt
Peel potatoes and cut into bite sized (or a little larger) chunks.
Add cut potatoes to a pot, cover with water and add 2 tsp. salt
Bring potatoes to a boil, reduce heat to medium high – cook for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Drain potatoes well after cooking.
In a large bowl, add cooked and drained potatoes and the butter. Mix well with a hand mixer (can also be mashed with a potato masher)
Add sour cream and mix again until well blended. Serve hot.
If someone at the table is watching their cholesterol, weight, diet, fat intake or whatever, they’re not gonna be happy about these potatoes. Serve them a slice of whole grain bread instead of the mashed potatoes and let everyone else indulge.
