  • Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Off the heat, mash potatoes, adding enough hot broth to make a smooth puree. Stir in sour cream and season with salt and pepper.

Tips

To make ahead: Keep the potatoes warm, covered with wax paper, over a pan of barely simmering water for up to 1 hour.
