Description

I started making these for Thanksgiving one year and we loved them so much, they've made their way into our meals at least a dozen times a year!

Ingredients
  • 3 pounds red potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 ½ cups half-and-half
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Directions
  1. 1. Place potatoes and 1 tablespoon kosher salt into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, 25 to 35 minutes. Drain and transfer potatoes to a large bowl.
  2. 2. Mix half-and-half and butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until heated through and butter is melted, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. 3. Blend potatoes with an electric hand mixer in the large bowl until mashed. Slowly pour 3/4 the cream-butter mixture into blended potatoes; mix on lowest speed until fully incorporated. Fold in the remaining 1/4 cream-butter mixture and sour cream. Season with 2 teaspoons kosher salt and black pepper.
