Got this from a friend who lives in Oregon & tries to eat a lot of homemade, local foods. She said this was her mom's standby recipe--and her mom's mom's too.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 medium potatoes, peeled & sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 34 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons onion flakes
  • salt & pepper

Directions

  1. Put potatoes in a large pot & cover with water. Boil for 10-12 minutes until a knife goes through the thickest ones easily.
  2. Drain all of water.
  3. Add butter, salt, pepper & onion flakes.
  4. Squish with a potate ricer/masher until creamy.
  5. Add sour cream and squish some more. Then add milk. (Saving the liquids 'til last helps keep the lumps away.).
  6. Put in a casserole dish with extra pats of butter and cover in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.
