Classic Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients

Why are our Classic Mashed Potatoes the best ever? Simple, extra-creamy and easy, they cook up fresh in a snap and team with all your favorite comforting main dishes.

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 15 min

 
 
  • 3 pounds Idaho Russet potatoes, peeled, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

 
  1. Place potato chunks in a large pot and add just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender; drain well.
  2. In a large bowl, combine potatoes and remaining ingredients; beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately.
Test Kitchen Tip:
  • Store Idaho potatoes in a cool, dark  and well-ventilated place. They will keep for about a week at room temperature and for several weeks at 45 to 50 degrees.
