Sour Cream & Onion Mashed Potatoes

sour cream and onion mashed potatoes @createdbydiane

Ever since I was a kid mashed potatoes have been a favorite of mine.

I loved eating them with dinner, and I especially loved when there were leftovers. I would heat them up and have them for a snack.

My tastes haven’t changed much, a bowl of mashed potatoes for a snack is pretty perfect to me.

I jazzed these up with some sour cream and sautéed onions oh and a bit of garlic too.

The best part is that I can whip a batch of these up so easily in my KitchenAid Mixer. I just love how fast it is and that I don’t have to fiddle with a hand mixer and those short beaters, it seems to take four times as long to whip potatoes with those.

There are so many things I use my KitchenAid Mixer for like making shredded chicken for the week in 22 minutes. I use it to make Italian Buttercream Frosting along with lots of yummy baked goods such as cookies, cakes, and scones.

Well I don’t want you to miss out on all the yumminess.
