  1. Place potatoes and 1 tablespoon kosher salt into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, 25 to 35 minutes. Drain and transfer potatoes to a large bowl.
  2. Mix half-and-half and butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until heated through and butter is melted, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Blend potatoes with an electric hand mixer in the large bowl until mashed. Slowly pour 3/4 the cream-butter mixture into blended potatoes; mix on lowest speed until fully incorporated. Fold in the remaining 1/4 cream-butter mixture and sour cream. Season with 2 teaspoons kosher salt and black pepper.

Pretty good, but more like whipped potatoes. These would be better if you just mashed them with a masher instead of turning them into a puree-like consistency with the hand mixer. Other than ...

I just tried this for the first time. It has very good flavor, however the potatoes were nearly soupy, and I only added 3/4 or so of the cream/butter mix. Next time I will cut that to half. I pe...

One word of advice... Only put in half the butter and half and half mixture, as well as half the salt, then taste. I am so glad I did because it was rich, and plenty salted!! I did use all the s...

My hubby and son loved it. It was a bit too rich for me, but I will definitely make again.

The whole amount of the half and half mixture is way too much. I think half would suffice. I will definitely make it that way next time.

Followed recipe other than halving since there's only two of us. Great recipe! Like another reviewer suggested, would just mash potatoes next time versus using beater--potatoes came out lookin...
