Garlic Mashed Potatoes

6 Yukon gold potatoes
6 red russet potatoes
1 baking potato
1/2 c sour cream
1/2 c buttermilk
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
3 cloves minced garlic
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp season salt

  • Clean potatoes very well, and place them in a pot of boiling water (you can skin the potatoes or leave the skins on; I always leave the skins on the potatoes as it gives additional texture, and the majority of the nutrients are found in the skin).  Allow the potatoes to boil until completely softened.
  • Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl, add the potatoes; mix with mixer speed at low to medium speed until all ingredients are well-blended and potatoes are the consistency you are looking for.
  • As you are mixing your potatoes, add more ingredients as you see fit.  I find that I almost always need to add a little more sour cream, season salt, or garlic to my potatoes, and the only true way to find out is to taste test!
