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!

I love mashed tators - but never could get them quite right... this recipe does the trick! Everyone says to always add more salt - which is what mine lacked - though, having to be careful how much sodium I use in our foods - this actually will be alright! Thank you.

Delicious! I used 4 jumbo russets and ended up adding a little more milk and sour cream to get the right consistency. I also used real butter instead of margarine and added garlic and onion powder. Thanks!

Absolutely divine! Creamy and moist, melt in your mouth goodness! I did add garlic to the boiling water as some have suggested. My family and I loved it! Thank you so much, it was perfect.
