Servings: 4
Total Time: 40 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes cut into 1 inch pieces
4 TBSP unsalted butter
1/3 cup sliced scallions(white and green parts)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup whole milk
2 TBSP sour cream
salt & pepper


1. Place the cut potatoes in a large pot and cover with water, about an inch above the potatoes. Add 1 tsp of salt to the water and cook over medium-high heat until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

2. Drain the potatoes and place them back in the pot, cook over low heat for about 5 minutes to release any excess moisture.

3. In a small saucepan melt the butter over medium heat, cook the garlic and scallions in the butter for about 30 seconds or until garlic becomes fragrant. Stir in the milk and cook until just warm.

4. Place potatoes in a large bowl and mash with a masher then stir in the milk mixture with 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper.
