Oh, so basic.  Oh, so yummy.

And don’t even take the time to peel the potatoes.  Don’t you remember your mom always saying, “You gotta eat your potato skins.  That’s where all the vitamins are!”?

Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 4

  • 1 ½ lbs. yukon gold potatoes, cubed (one small or average size potato per person)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt and Pepper

  1. Put potatoes into a saucepan. Add ½ teaspoon salt. Add water until potatoes are covered. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes, or until done – a fork can easily be poked through them.
  2. Drain water from potatoes. Return potatoes to hot saucepan. Add cream, butter, and sour cream. Use potato masher to mash potatoes until well mashed. Add additional milk, a little at a time, and stir together to desired consistency. Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste.
