Creamy potatoes with garlic and herbs is a satisfying side to any meat dish. Sandi Richard came up with this, but I changed it a bit. Enjoy!

What a lovely dish. I like that it's low fat and easy to prepare. My DH wanted a roast with mashed potatoes for dinner tonight. This made my weight watching so much easier. We loved the flavor and as I'm writing this review I just now realize I forgot the butter/oil. Well that just goes to show you that even without the extra fat this is great. I liked the sturdiness of the potatoes. I used a hand masher because we enjoy them thick and not creamy. Loved the touch of sage. Thanks for posting. :)

  2. When potatoes are tender, drain and mash along with garlic cloves using a potato masher or electric beaters.
  3. Stir butter or olive oil, sage, salt, pepper and sour cream or buttermilk into the remaining potatoes and return to low heat, stirring until warm.
