  • Drain the potatoes and return to pot. Add the butter-cream mixture, sour cream, nutmeg, pepper, and the remaining salt. With a handheld potato masher, mash the potatoes. If a thinner consistency is desired, add the remaining cream, 1 tablespoon at a time.

  • Transfer the mashed potatoes to a heatproof serving dish.
