3 medium baking potatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 t. salt
4 T. (1/2 stick) butter, at room temperature
1/4 c. sour cream, at room temperature
1 t. finely minced garlic
Whole milk, start with 1 T., at room temperature or warmed
Salt and pepper.

In a medium saucepan, cook the potatoes in salted water until tender, about 15-20 minutes.  Drain the potatoes and return them to the saucepan.

Add the butter, sour cream, and garlic.  Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or the back of a fork until the ingredients are blended.  Add the milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the potatoes are the desired consistency.  Taste, and add salt and pepper if needed.
