Place potatoes in a large Dutch oven and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and then turn down to keep at a rolling boil. Cook potatoes until fork tender, about thirty minutes.
Drain potatoes and return to pot, heat on low for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring slightly. Remove potatoes from heat and push through a ricer into a large bowl.
Whisk in melted butter, sour cream and 1 cup of half-and-half. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add more half-and-half as needed to achieve desired texture.
