Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes

It’s thanksgiving this week in the States … a holiday that is not celebrated here in New Zealand. But since I spent almost 7 years of my life living there, every year I have friends over for a thanksgiving meal. This year instead of the turkey, it was fried chicken as the 12 guests preferred that over chicken. I made about 5 thanksgiving sides, one of them was this delicious and creamy Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes.

I was so impressed by the way it turned out. I am in love with Red potatoes … they definitely have a different flavor than regular potatoes … Enjoy this super easy and delicious recipe! I hope you get to make it this festive season…

Summary

  • Cuisine: american
  • Course: side dish
  • Preparation Time: 10 mins
  • Cooking Time: 30 mins

Ingredients

8 – 10 red potatoes
3 – 4 tbsps dried mixed herbs (or go with fresh basil, oregano, parsley)
to taste Salt and Pepper
4 – 6 tbsps butter
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream

Steps

  1. I did not fully peel the red potatoes. I find the color of the skin adds to the ‘look’ of this dish …. so it’s really upto you if you want to leave the skin on or not.
  2. Boil the potatoes in some salted water. Once they are ready, drain and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Mash well along with the butter. Add the herbs, pepper and some salt if needed. I went with dry herbs and they still tasted great. Finally add the milk and sour cream and mash / mix it all well together.
  4. Serve warm! If you are making this a day ahead, I would warm it up in the oven than microwaving it.
