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.
