Step 1 - Boil Spud Lite Potatoes

Steam potatoes for 15 minutes or until very tender. Drain saucepan and return potatoes to the pan. Using a potato masher or ricer, mash potatoes until smooth. Return pan to a medium heat, stirring constantly for 1-2 minutes, to help potato dry out.

Step 2 - Add Garlic

Heat butter in a small frying pan over a low heat. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add milk and sour cream to pan, stirring until heated through.

Step 3 - Finish Mash to Serve

Pour milk mixture over the mashed potatoes. Add chives, pecorino, salt and pepper, stirring until mixture is super smooth.
