I know why you're here! You're looking for a new and better way to serve mashed potatoes, and I have good news: The most delicious dish of mashed potatoes with sour cream, garlic, and chives. Start taking some notes because your dinner needs this.

– 2 pounds starchy potatoes [0.9kg] see notes – Salt – 4 garlic cloves – ⅓ cup milk [60 ml] – ⅓ cup sour cream [120 ml} – ½ stick butter [56.7g] – Pepper – Chopped chives for garnish


Scrub, peel, and rinse your potatoes, then chop them into similarly sized pieces, so they finish cooking at the same time.

Step 1:

In a large pot or saucepan, put the potatoes and enough water to cover them plus an inch [2.5 centimeters] above the potatoes. Add a tablespoon of salt and garlic cloves to the water.

Step 2:

Bring to a boil over medium heat and simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender (around 17 minutes). Drain the water, discard the garlic, and place the potatoes in a large mixing bowl.

Step 4:
