- 1Peel, cut up and boil potatoes until tender.
- 2Drain water and put potatoes in a mixing bowl.
- 3Add margarine, sour cream and milk.
- 4Use an electric mixer and mix until desired consistency.
- 5The KEY here is to add salt and pepper to taste.
- 6You might add anywhere from a teaspoon to several tablespoons of salt, just depending on how much you like salt.
- 7Pepper is the same way, although use it more sparingly.
- 8Just remember to add a little at a time, until you get it where you like it.
- 9Once that is done, I usually put a couple of pats of margarine on top of the finished potatoes to let it melt.
- 10Then sprinkle parsley over it.
- 11This will make the best mashed potatoes I've ever found anywhere.
