print recipe

3 medium-baking potatoes, in my case they have to be Yukon Gold, peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick) at room temperature
1/4 cup sour cream, at room temperature
1 teaspoon finely minced garlic, I grate mine on the micro plane, about 3 cloves
Whole milk, start with 1 tablespoon, at room temperature
Salt and pepper

Cook the potatoes in salted water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the saucepan.

Add the butter, sour cream, and garlic. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or the back of a fork until the ingredients are blended. Add the milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the potatoes are the desired consistency. Taste, and add salt and pepper if desired.
