Classic Mashed Potatoes

These creamy, fluffy, kid-friendly mashed potatoes get their texture from butter, milk, and a touch of sour cream. If you're looking to try something just a little different, replace a few potatoes with celeriac (also known as celery root). Most kids love the sweet flavor, and celeriac is full of vitamins. For the fluffiest, lump-free potatoes, it's worth investing in a food mill or potato ricer. You won't be disappointed with the results.
