– Red Potatoes – Salt – Butter  – Sour Cream – Garlic Powder

Wash the potatoes and cut them into 1" cubes. (Note: You can leave the peel on if desired or peel half of the potatoes. The potato peel gives it a rustic texture.)


Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with hot water, add 2 teaspoons of salt, and bring to a boil.


Cooking on medium heat, boil potatoes for 20-30 minutes, or until they are fork-tender and no longer stick to a fork when pierced.


Drain the water, then add the potatoes back to the pot. Add in your butter, sour cream, salt, and garlic powder.


Mash the potatoes with a hand potato masher, getting out all of the largest chunks. You can keep mashed potatoes as chunky or as smooth as you like, adding up to ¼ cup of milk as needed.
