Garlic Mashed Potatoes

  • 1 ½ lbs red potatoes, quartered and skins left on
  • 1 ½ tsp Kosher salt, divided
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup butter

Place potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover. Stir in 1 tsp of the Kosher salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 20-25 mins.

Meanwhile, place the remaining ½ tsp of salt, pepper, garlic powder, sour cream, Parmesan cheese and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer.

When potatoes are done (pierce easily with a fork), remove from heat and drain. Add the potatoes to the bowl with the other ingredients and mix on medium speed until mostly smooth, or to desired consistency.
