One of my favorite things in the entire world would have to be mashed potatoes. Dont ask me why. I can literally eat just mashed potatoes for dinner. Theyre just so yummy. This recipe I cant take any credit for. Like a lot of my recipes on here this has been given to me by my grandmother, Gogo. Now, Gogo is one hell of a cook so if this is a recipe from her, you know youre going to like it. Her sour cream potatoes are always a winner at family get together so I had to share the recipe with you!


Idaho potatoes 5 Large , peeled and chopped
Butter 8 Tablespoon , softened and cut in pieces
Sour cream 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (1/2 Cup)
Salt 2 Teaspoon
Cracked black pepper 1/2 Teaspoon



1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

2. Peel the potatoes and chop them in even size pieces.


3. In a large pot, place the potatoes, cover with water enough to cover them and boil until fork tender.

4. Using a potato ricer, rice the potatoes into a baking dish, or used box grater or use 2 forks and shred them, make sure to maintain the consistency.

5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper on the top.

6. Dot the potatoes with butter, all over the top.

7. Put small dollops of sour cream all over the potatoes.

8. Using a fork, lightly mix the sour cream, butter and potatoes.

9. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the top starts to get golden brown in colour.

If you like, you can add herbs, cheeses, bacon, chives or top it with Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs to make crust on top.
