Sour Cream and Chive Mashed Potatoes
If you love baked potatoes slathered with butter, sour cream and chives you'll love these mashed potatoes flavored with the same toppings
2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and quartered
3/4 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup snipped fresh chives
- Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough cold water to cover by 1-inch. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking water. Drain the potatoes.
- Return the hot potatoes to the pan. Mash with a potato masher until smooth. Add the sour cream, butter, salt, and pepper. Mash until fluffy, adding some of the cooking water if necessary. Stir in the chives.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
