Garlic Red Potatoes Mashed

Heaven on a fork.. Yup.. Garlic, butter and sweet red potatoes. Absolutely perfect side. 

I made these to go along with the italian sausage meatloaf last night. Covered them in gravy and butter. Ugh.. So incredibly good and easy to make. 


  • 1 large pot 
  • Fork
  • Cutting board and knife
  • Serving bowl and spoon
  • Electric mixer
  • Hot plate


  • 10 small to average size red potatoes washed and cut into 4ths
  • 1 large garlic clove peeled and sliced
  • 1 spoonful of sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 2 pats of butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Wash and cut your potatoes.

Place them in your pot and fill with water. Be sure your water is at least 1 inch above your potatoes. Add a dash of salt to help with the boiling process.

Cook potatoes till they are tender when pierced with a fork.

Peel and slice your garlic, set aside.

Once your potatoes are cooked, drain water set on a hot plate.

Add your egg, butter, sour cream and garlic. Using your electric mixer whip your potatoes till soft and just a little creamy, you do not want soup. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon into your serving bowl

Serve warm with butter, gravy or just eat plain. They are amazing no matter how you serve them.

Serves about 4
