Mashed Potatoes


2 lbs potatoes
1 tsp salt
2 oz butter
4 tbs whole milk
2 tbs sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp paprika

Peel and quarter potatoes. Put potatoes in a steamer and sprinkle with salt. Cover and steam until tender (about 20-25 minutes). When potatoes are cooked, remove from the steamer and drain off water (if any). Put in a sauce pan and cover with cheese cloth for about 4 minutes. Add butter, milk and creme. Beat at slow speed to break potatoes up, then increase speed to high and whip until smooth. Add more salt and pepper if you feel it needs it. Sprinkle with paprika for color.
