Ingredients

2 pounds (4 cups) medium red potatoes, washed, cut into quarters
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Water
1 Half Stick (1/4 cup) Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into 4 pieces
1/4 cup sour cream
Pepper, if desired

Directions

Place potatoes and 1 teaspoon salt in 3-quart saucepan; cover with water. Cook over high heat until water comes to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain potatoes; return to saucepan.

Heat half & half in 1-quart saucepan over medium-low heat just until warm.

Add butter to potatoes; mash potatoes until about two-thirds are mashed and one-third remain lumpy. Gradually add half & half to potato mixture; mix well. Stir in sour cream and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; add pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.

 

Variations:

Ranch Smashed Potatoes: Omit 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir in 2 tablespoons dry ranch dressing mix and 1/4 cup chopped green onions with sour cream.

Chipotle, Green Chili & Cheddar Smashed Potatoes: Stir in 1 teaspoon chopped chipotle chile in adobo sauce, 1 (4-ounce) can well-drained diced green chiles and 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese.

Caramelized Onion & Swiss Cheese Smashed Potatoes: Stir in 1/2 cup caramelized onions and 1 cup shredded Land O Lakes® Swiss Cheese. To caramelize onions: Melt 3 tablespoons butter in 12-inch nonstick skillet until sizzling; add 2 cups sliced onions. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 15-20 minutes or until onions are deep golden brown.

Roasted Garlic & Buttermilk Smashed Potatoes: Omit Half & half. Stir in 3/4 cup buttermilk and mashed pulp from 1 bulb roasted garlic. To roast garlic: Heat oven to 350ºF. Remove some papery skin from garlic bulb without separating cloves. Cut off top 1/2 inch of garlic bulb. Place bulb in 8-inch square piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil; drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Wrap tightly in foil. Bake 45-50 minutes or until garlic is soft and tender. Cool 15 minutes. Carefully separate cloves. Squeeze out pulp; mash.

Recipe Tip

Buy potatoes that are firm and smooth. Make sure brown spots and blossom ends are trimmed from potatoes, even though they are not peeled. Cut off any green areas as they will taste bitter when cooked.
