Mashed Potatoes with Chives

  • 3/4 lbs. potoatoes

  • 2 Tbs butter

  • 1/3 cup whipping cream

  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 5-6 blades of chives, finely chopped

  1. Peel the potatoes, and cut into about 2-inch cubes (or smaller).

  2. Rinse the potoatoes once through cold water.

  3. Place the potatoes in a pot of cold water with a dash of salt, and bring to a boil.

  4. Meanwhile, in a separate pot, heat up butter, cream, and milk under medium heat, and remove when they start to simmer.

  5. Boil the potoates until they are soft enough for a fork to past through.  Drain the potoates in a colander.

  6. Using a masher or a fork, mash the potatoes half way, then add butter, milk, cream and chives.  Continue to mash until you get the desired level of smoothness.

Cook’s Notes
  • If you have extra chives, garnish with chives on top and serve.

  • For a low-fat option of this recipe, substitute the cream and milk with low-fat milk.

  • Try an alternative flavor by substituting the chives with a small bunch of parsley, chopped finely.
