  • 5 medium sized boiled potatoes. The instant pot works great. Skin on or off.
  • 1/4 cup softened or melted butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk or cream
  • 1/2 tbsp finely chopped garlic (optional, to taste)
  • 2 tsp chopped chives (optional, to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper (to taste)



Once you use a ricer for your mashed potatoes, you'll never go back.  Hand mixers can make them so gummy.  Once you rice them, there are no lumps & it's so easy to fluff them up with a masher.  Make them even more special by adding some cheese!  How you, "do" your mashed potatoes?  Please share!
