This is a version of Mashed Potatoes that my husband actually likes. You can use any type of potatoes and change the amounts of butter, sour cream, and milk to your taste. I like it with russets myself.
Pioneers didn't have much, but what they did have they made the best of. This is a cross between dumplings and noodles, uses only 4 ingredients and is a great comfort food. We have never modified it from the original recipe which has been passed in our family I think forever.
