  • 8 medium sized russet potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • cup light sour cream
  • 1-2 cloves garlic crushed (we like garlic so I used 2 cloves)
  • 4 green onions diced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Wash your potatoes really well. You are going to leave the skins on so you don’t want to get a bite with gitty dirt. Dice potatoes into 1 inch cubes
  • In a large pot, place potatoes with enough water to cover plus an inch above. Bring to a boil and cook for about 10-15 minutes until fork tender.
  • Drain potatoes and give them a light mash with a potato masher. You want to leave chucks and the potatoes with smooth some once the other ingredients are added.
  • Mix in the butter, garlic, green onion, salt, and pepper until well combined. Serves 6-8.
