Sour Cream and Leek Mashed Potatoes


Potatoes and leeks are a classic flavor pairing, and here, they come together in luscious, creamy mashed potatoes. Serve with roast chicken, meatloaf, or as a bed for seared or roasted fish. This recipe doubles or triples easily, but add the milk in increments, as you may not need it all.

What you will need

1-1/2 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

Kosher salt

2 Tbs. unsalted butter

2 medium leeks (white and light-green parts only), halved lengthwise, washed, and sliced crosswise into 1/4-inch-wide pieces (about 1 cup)

1/2 cup sour cream, at room temperature

1/2 cup whole milk, heated; more as needed

Freshly ground white or black pepperย
