WHAT GOES IN HOMEMADE MASHED POTATOES?
Cut your potatoes into the same sized pieces to ensure they all cook evenly and at the same time.
Boil potatoes in salted water until JUST fork-tender. Try not to over cook too much as they can become quite sticky or gluey when overcooked.
Drain cooked potatoes, then add in the hot milk, butter and sour cream.
Mash the potatoes with a potato masher until smooth, adding a little extra milk if needed. You can also use an electric hand mixer beaters to ensure a smoother consistency. Beat just enough for them to smooth out while being extra careful not to over beat as they may become gluggy.
You can add almost anything into mashed potatoes and they will taste amazing! Some optional ingredients:
Onions: green onions, shallots, red onion (again, add to the water with the cook and potatoes together).
Fresh herbs like thyme, parsley or rosemary
