Sour Cream Smashed Potatoes

Sour Cream Smashed Potatoes - KJ & Company

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.




  1. Place the potatoes into the bottom of a large pot and cover with enough water to cover the tops of the potatoes by a couple inches. Bring to a boil over medium/high heat and boil the potatoes until they are fork-tender, about 25 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes and place them into a large mixing bowl or bowl of an electric mixer. Add the sour cream and butter in with the potatoes. Using a stand mixer or a hand-mixer on low speed, mix the potatoes until they are somewhat smooth, but still have some small chunks of potato.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
