Mashed Potatoes (Adapted From Paula Deen)
8-12 Medium Red New Potatoes (I never make mashed potatoes with anything but new potatoes)
1/2 Cup Milk
8 Tbs (1 Stick) Butter (Come on, this is a Paula recipe! You knew butter would be involved!)
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Salt To Taste
Slice your potatoes into 1/4 inch cubes (Do not peel them!) and cook in a pot of boiling water (medium-high heat) for about 15 minutes, until fork-tender (If your pot starts to boil over, put a little spoonful of butter in. It stops them from foaming up!). Drain potatoes and put them into a bowl. Use a hand-mixer to mash your potatoes to a slightly chunky consistency. Then, add the milk, butter and sour cream. Whip the potatoes until smooth, and add your salt, pepper and garlic salt to desired taste. If your potatoes are too thick, you can add more milk to make a creamier consistency.
These are easy and delicious!
