Garlic Redskin Mashed Potatoes Recipe


  • 6 medium-sized red potatoes                  
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1/4 tsp fresh black pepper                        
  • 1/2 lbs of softened unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup of sour cream                              
  • Salt
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder                            
  • 2 tiny sliced scallions
  • 1 tbsp of granulated sugar                            
  • 1/4 tsp steak seasoning
  • 1/4 cup of freshly chopped parsley


Wash your red potatoes unpeeled and cut each in half. Set your potatoes in a saucepan or a large pot you know you can work with. Cover the pot to boil. Add salt to taste. Leave to boil for 25 mins. Your potatoes should be soft and easy to mash.

Now, drain the water and place your potatoes in a bowl large enough for mixing. At this point, add the milk, butter, black pepper, steak seasoning, sugar, chopped parsley, and garlic powder. To control how dense you want your dish to turn out, regulate the milk by starting with a small quantity until you get the texture you want.

Mash the mix in your electric mixer until all ingredients are well blended. Serve warm and enjoy!
