  • Total Time 35 min
  • Servings 8

8
medium russet or Yukon gold potatoes (about 3 lb), peeled, cut into quarters
4
large cloves garlic, peeled
1/3
cup fat-free (skim) milk, heated
1
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon pepper
1/4
cup reduced-fat sour cream

  • 1 In 3-quart saucepan, place potatoes and garlic; add enough water (salted if desired) to cover. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover loosely and boil gently 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain; shake pan with potatoes over low heat to dry.
