This recipe is part of a personal quest of coming up with easy, fat free alternatives to artery-clogging old school heavies. If you substitute or vary ingredients sensibly, it will probably be hard to go wrong. Garlic and salt should be adjusted to taste.


  1. Wash and boil potatoes in water until appropriately tender.
  2. While potatoes are boiling, add sour cream, garlic and salt to suitably-sized bowl and stir until well combined.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  4. Drain potatoes and mash using masher.
  5. Add sour cream mixture to mashed potatoes and mash and stir until well combined.
  6. Transfer everything to oven-safe baking/serving dish (depth of potatoes should be about 3 inches).
  7. Bake for 15 minutes to serve hot.
