Sour Cream Smashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are a classic side dish. But, Sour Cream Smashed Potatoes are a delicious spin on a classic! Baby Yukon gold potatoes and baby red potatoes are boiled until soft, then smashed up with creamy sour cream, butter and salt and pepper to make a simple, yet satisfying side dish. I love “smashing” the potatoes instead of “mashing” them, as you will get bites of smooth and creamy mashed potatoes swirled with bits of tender potatoes waiting to be devoured.

 

You can easily whip these up for any weeknight meal, date night or even for the holidays!

Description

Mashed potatoes are a classic side dish. But, Sour Cream Smashed Potatoes are a delicious spin on a classic! Baby Yukon gold potatoes and baby red potatoes are boiled until soft, then smashed up with creamy sour cream, butter and salt and pepper to make a simple, yet satisfying side dish. I love “smashing” the potatoes instead of “mashing” them, as you will get bites of smooth and creamy mashed potatoes swirled with bits of tender potatoes waiting to be devoured.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds baby Yukon gold potatoes, quartered
  • 1 1/2 pounds baby red potatoes, quartered
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Add the quartered potatoes into a large pot and fill with enough water to just cover the tops of the potatoes. Place it over medium-high heat on the stove top and bring to a boil. Gently boil the potatoes until fork-tender, about 15-20 minutes, Drain and add the potatoes to a large bowl.
  2. Add the sour cream and butter to the potatoes. Using a hand mixer on low speed, carefully start to smash the potatoes and combine with the sour cream and butter. Use the hand mixer until the desired consistency is achieved – you can either have them more smooth (more time) or more “smashed” (less time.) Season to taste with salt and pepper.
