So simple, so good. This is a great recipe for rich, delicious mashed potatoes. I've tried it with just a pinch of crushed garlic as well and this recipe tastes perfect.

I made this 2 nights ago and we all loved it. This is the best mashed potatoes I have ever tried,so easy and it's things I always have in the fridge. This is a keeper thanks for a great recipe. I might add a little garlic next time:)

A very good, simple recipe with that little something extra to bring it over the top. I make mashed potatoes similarly, but without the sour cream. The sour cream is the extra secret ingredient that makes the difference. Thanks for sharing.

PERFECT! I needed a recipe that was quick and easy and this certainly was the one! I left the skins on the potatoes (to make my job easier), I added a little more sour cream, and I left the parsley off. Creamy and delicious!

Best mashed potatoes EVER!!! I added 3 peeled whole cloves of garlic to the water with the potatoes and used Land O Lakes margarine instead of Blue Bonnet, but followed the rest exactly and came out with the creamiest potatoes I've ever made and I've tried numerous recipes...something about the ratio of ingredients in this one makes them the absolute BEST! Thanks for a keeper :)

These were awesome. The first time I used red potato's with skins instead of russet. I did 8 and I barely had room in my pot! The 2nd time I did two Yukon Gold and 5 Red and only did 2 of the potato's with skins and the rest skinned. The first way with all red and more skins was better. Both were awesome. My husband who hates sour cream even loved them (you cant taste the sour cream, it just helps with the creaminess of the taters :)

Good,down-to-earth recipe. I did use butter instead of margarine (personal taste)and warmed up the milk with a couple of cloves of garlic (minced) in it. I think that butter milk might be a nice substitute for the regular milk; to add just a little bit of "tang" to the under-lying taste.

You are right on Mr. Tsmith70! Your mashed potatoes are the best ever. I've made them two nights in a row and they've been yummie each time. I do believe they're a "Keeper"! Thanks for sharing. Laudee
