This is my "go to" recipe for mashed potatoes. I use grass-fed butter instead of margarine. If I don't have sour cream, I use yogurt.

We made these for our Thanksgiving dinner, and the mashed potato connoisseurs of the house said it was very good! It is definitely a recipe that I will be using again, thank you!

I avoid making mash potatoes because I suck at it. This recipe was easy to follow and required minimal ingredients. Didn't change a thing, and IT WAS SLAMMING!!!! Thank you for a fantastic recipe. Will use it always.

Potatoes like this just make me want to eat the whole bowl. I made these for a Thanksgiving dinner, and doubled the recipe. Thank you!

Really simple, and really good! I actually am too lazy to even bring out my mixer, so the first try or two the consistency was a bit lumpier than what i prefer. However, I got the hang of it quickly (again, too lazy to pull out the mixer!) and can now easily mash the potatoes with just a handy fork. I typically use about 8 potatoes and it's a LOT for just my husband & I; so usually we use the leftovers for the next night's dinner.

This has been my go to recipe for years now. Guaranteed success every time! I do use unsalted butter in place of the margarine, omit the parsley, and sometimes add more sour cream and milk if I want the mashed potatoes creamier.<br/><br/>My Boiling Method: Start in cold water, bring to a boil (takes about 15 min). Cover and simmer about 30 min. until fork tender. Drain and place back in pan over heat 30 seconds to remove water.

By far the best mashed potatoes I've ever had. This recipe deserves more than 5 stars! Made it with paprika chicken and sour cream gravy, and the sour cream gravy over this is divine, though we thought the potatoes could stand on their own just the way they are. Incredible, adding this to my recipe box. Thanks for posting!

These were great! I loved the sour cream in them. I didn't use the electric mixer just a potato masher and it's still great. Next time I may try it with the mixer. Thanks for posting!
