These are quick and delicious and go well with any meal. To save time for a busy holiday, whisk sour cream, cream, eggs and spices together and store in fridge until ready to add them in.

  1. Wash potatoes and remove eyes and bad spots. Do not peel. Cut in half or large chunks. If using garlic, peel clove and place in pot with potatoes.
  2. Cover with salted water and bring to a boil. Cook on medium-low for 20 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender.
  3. Drain potatoes and put back into pot. Add remaining ingredients and mash in the pot using a hand-held potato masher.
  4. Add additional milk, salt and pepper as needed. Add optional spices if desired.
  5. Top with paprika and either parsley or chives.

Kind of hard to figure out how much 1 lb. of potatoes is. Mine came out really wet and globby. You might want to tell us how many potatoes to use in number rather than poundage.

Delicious -- used green onions since it was what we had. Quick and delicious side dish. Thanks!
