Garlic Mashed Potatoes

These are very similar to my usual mashed potato recipe. I like the addition of the sour cream and the richness it gave to the dish. This is a perfect pairing for the rich gravy from the sweet and sour brisket.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes
  • 3 medium baking potatoes peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon (or more) whole milk, at room temperature or warmed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a medium saucepan, 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 needed.
