8 potatoes

1 stick (1/2 cup melted butter) (if using unsalted butter, reduce the salt to 1/2 teaspoon)

1/4 cup sour cream

1 clove minced garlic

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Chopped chives for topping


  1. Place potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Add salt and bring to a boil, cook for 25 minutes, or until they are tender when pinching them with a fork.
  2. Remove the water and mash the potatoes in the same pot, add butter, sour cream, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix everything to combine.
  3. Transfer to individual baking dishes or a big baking dish and top with the cheddar cheese. Broil for 10 minutes or until the cheese melts.
