Thank you so much for this recipe. I have made mashed potatoes for years guessing at the amount of potatoes, milk and butter, and then wondered if they would turn out okay. This time, I made my potatoes with confidence. I did did cut down on the butter somewhat, but otherwise used the amount of milk to potatoes. Delicious!

WOW! My grandmother use to make whipped potatoes all the time when I was a child. I tried re-creating them with just butter and milk but they never worked out for me. Your recipe with the sour cream added was just right! I will be making these again and again! Thanks for posting!
