Servings 2 people


  • 3 cups quartered petite gold potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 cup parmesan
  • 3 Tbsp. sour cream


  • Cut petite potatoes into quarters. In a deep pot, boil the quartered potatoes in salted water until you can easily slide a fork into them - about 12-15 minutes.
  • Pour water and potatoes into a colander, discarding all water.
  • Transfer potatoes back into the same pot they were boiled in. Immediately add minced garlic, and using a potato masher, mash the potatoes into the garlic.
  • Mash in butter, then mash in cream.
  • Switch to a large spoon, and stir in seasonings, parmsean, and sour cream. If you want the potatoes to have a creamier consistency, simply add more cream (or milk).
  • Serve hot! Garnish with finely chopped chives for a beautiful presentation. Also top with a small slab of butter.
