Expert Tips

If you like, you can serve these toppers on baked instead of mashed potatoes.

Although the flavor will not be as intense, you can substitute chopped pimientos for the roasted red bell peppers in the Italian Pesto-Sour Cream Topper.

For Italian Pesto-Sour Cream Topped Potatoes, in small bowl, mix 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup basil pesto and 2 tablespoons chopped drained roasted red bell peppers. Spoon onto individual servings of potatoes; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives.
