I just love these mashed potatoes! They have a little extra "oomph." I loosely copied this from my husbands aunt who is the absolute bestest cook I know.
5-6 medium sized potatoes, boiled and peeled
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1-2 tsp garlic
The above measurements are very loose estimates. Like most of my cooking I "eyeball" it and sample for flavor and add more as needed. For an extra special occasion, wrap a head of fresh garlic in foil and roast in the oven until mushy and add a few cloves to the potatoes.
I just put all the ingredients is a big pan and hand mash with a masher then mix with a spoon. No matter how many I make, there are rarely leftovers.
These are great served with yesterdays "Chicken Noodle" recipe or served alone with an onion gravy(will share recipe tomorrow!)
