  • 8 cups water
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Place the potatoes and water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1 hour, or until potatoes are very soft.

Mix the evaporated milk, heavy cream, sour cream, butter, onion salt, garlic powder, salt and pepper with the potatoes. Simmer 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until liquid has reduced by 1/3.

Scoop out and drain 1 to 2 cups of the mixture and thoroughly mash with a potato masher. Return to mixture. Garnish and serve.
