Sour Cream & Chive Mashed Potatoes
- 5 large red potatoes, washed, peeled and chopped into cubes
- ¼ cup of milk
- 2 Tbsp. of butter
- 2 Tbsp. sour cream
- 3 Tbsp. of chives, chopped
- 5 Tbsp. of salt
- 2 Tbsp. of pepper
- 1 Tbsp. of chopped green onion
1. Add your chopped potatoes to a boiling pot of water. Cook them for about 20 minutes until they’re soft and you can put a fork through them easily.
2. Drain your potatoes and add them to a large bowl. Add your milk, butter and sour cream. Mash with a hand masher and mix well.
3. Then add your chives, salt, pepper and green onion. Mix well.
4. Top with additional chives, green onion and freshly cracked pepper before serving.
That’s it! These are incredibly easy and you’ll be so happy with the flavor. I purposely didn’t go overboard on adding too much of any one thing – sour cream, butter, milk, etc. – so that the potatoes could really sing. They’re just nicely flavored with these rich, smooth and complimenting flavors of the spices, herbs and dairy ingredients.
