Peel potatoes and cut into large pieces. Place in a large pot and cover with water and sprinkle with 1 Tablespoon of Salt. Bring to a boil. Once the potatoes reach a boil, lower the heat to low and cover. Cook for 25-35 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain.
In a small saucepan, heat the butter and half-n-half until butter is melted and warm, about 5 minutes. This can also be done in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl. If using a microwave, heat for 1 minute or until the butter is melted.
Slowly add butter and cream mixture, mixing at the lowest speed. Fold in sour cream, and salt. Taste and season more if necessary.
**If you need to re-warm these mashed potatoes, add a tad more butter and half-n-half.
