Peel and rinse potatoes, then slice them and add them to a pot of boiling water. Once boiled until very tender, drain. I usually boil for aprox. 15 minutes, give or take a few. Add back to the pot beat with electric mixer adding butter and folding in sour cream. Once thoroughly mixed, add the rest of ingredients and mix again except paparika which I sprinkle just a bit on top for color. They are ready to be served. My husband loves these!
