Garlic Mashed Potatoes

My wonderful neighbor, Brittny, let me borrow her The Essential Mormon Cookbook. I went through the entire book and picked some recipes that I actually thought I might like.

Now don't judge this dish by my picture...my camera is not the best, nor are my photography skills (but I AM working on it.)

Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Makes 8-10 servings

   5  lbs potatoes
1/2  cup grated onion
   3  Tbs butter
   5  cloves garlic, minced
   2  cups sour cream
1/4  cup butter, softened
   2  tsp salt
1/2  tsp pepper

Peel potatoes and cut into large chunks. Cover with water and boil until tender, drain. Mash well and set aside. Microwave onion and butter for 2 minutes. Add minced garlic, then microwave for 1 more minute. Add to potatoes, then also stir in sour cream, 1/4 cup butter, salt and pepper. Spoon into 9x13 pan. Cover with foil and bake at 325 for 30 minutes.
