With Easter around the corner I decided it was a good time to post this Creamy Garlic Mashed Potato Recipe. The sour cream in this recipe makes it smooth and creamy. We had roast chicken breasts when I made this recipe,  but I am sure it also would go good with an Easter Ham or turkey. Give this a try I am sure if you guest over for Easter they’ll love it. Enjoy
