Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds red potatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
