Yummy recipe for the holidays~

(Argh you blogger!!! the pics are backwards, but I think you can get the idea!)

I have pics for two recipes, today's will be my favorite and totally yummy Garlic Mashed Potatoes. This recipe is super simple and absolutely a crowd favorite. There are definitely NO fat free, but in moderation... these are the best!
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Ingredients needed:
5 lb package of Rose potatoes or baby red potatoes
(1) stick of butter (1/2 a cup)
(1) 8 oz container of sour cream
2-3 Tbsp of minced garlic ( I used Christopher Ranch which stays fresh nicely!)
Lawry's Seasoning Salt
First start by cleaning your potatoes. I peel and core out the eyes of mine, but you can keep a little peel in them if you'd like ( a little peel never hurt anyone!)
after you have your clean, peeled potatoes, cut them into quarters or depending on the size you can vary the portion as long as the pieces are about 1 inch to 2 inch cubes. cutting down the potatoes helps to cook them faster. Next, add your potatoes to boiling water, you will want enough to cover the potatoes. Cook until tender (about 20 minutes). You will want to make sure that you cook the potatoes all the way through as it helps when you mash them!
After you potatoes are cooked, drain and dry off the excess water. Begin mashing with a potato masher. From there add the butter, then the sour cream, garlic and season with Lawry's seasoning salt to taste. Mash until the potatoes are smooth and creamy and all the ingredients are blended. You can garnish with a little seasoning salt on top before you table the potatoes.
So there is a quick easy and impressive recipe to give you a nice holiday start! This recipe is a version of potatoes that I concocted to mimic a recipe from one of the restaurants that I used to work at. I use to love tasting yummy food and trying to figure out the recipe! I am sure there are plenty of other versions of this, so please feel free to share your favorites on this link! Also these are super yummy the next day covered in Cheese and bacon!!! I know totally fattening, but soooo good!
