Smooth and creamy homemade Sour Cream and Ranch Mashed Potatoes. These creamy and flavorful Mashed Potatoes will be working hard to take the top spot as your favorite style of mashed potatoes. The perfect side dish for any meal and one that the entire family is going to love.
Do you have that one food that you can just never turn down? Mashed potatoes are completely my weakness! I could eat them with just about every meal in just about any form.
Really potatoes in general, French fries, mashed, smashed, or baked. I love them in each and every way.
Should you flavor your mashed potatoes?
Potatoes are a staple around the world. They are starchy and very plain, so you should definitely flavor your mashed potatoes. Why just use milk and butter to season them? Get wild and try some different things! These Sour Cream and Ranch Mashed Potatoes are no exception, I can't get enough! Seasoning them was also really easy! I just added a few extras to give them a whole new taste.
- Russet Potatoes
- Unsalted Butter
- Sour Cream
- Ranch Seasoning
How to make Sour Cream and Ranch Mashed Potatoes:
Step one: Peel and cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Place in a large pot and cover with water.
Step two: Next bring the water to a boil then place it on medium heat until potatoes are tender and fall apart. Drain water and return potatoes back to the pot.
Step three: Last mash your potatoes then add butter, sour cream, milk, and seasoning. continue to mash and mix until smooth and creamy.
Tip: Use a hand masher for mashed but lumpy potatoes or an electric hand mixer for creamy potatoes.
Can you substitute Sour Cream for Milk?
Yes you can, please remember it may change the flavor than what milk does. In this recipe I use Milk to make it creamy and the sour cream to flavor it.
What can I use to replace Milk in Mashed Potatoes?
You can use the cooking water from the mashed potatoes, veggie or chicken stock, any milk alternative, or sour cream.
