Mashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives
Yield: 7 cups Prep 15 mins Cook 30 mins


  • 3 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Make It

1. Peel potatoes and cut into 2-inch chunks. Place in large saucepan and add enough water to cover by 2 inches. Add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook 20 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Drain; return potatoes to pot.

2. Combine milk and butter in glass measuring cup and microwave on high 1 minute, or until butter melts. Pour into potatoes and mash coarsely. Add sour cream, chives, pepper, and remaining salt; mash to desired consistency. (Potatoes will have the best texture if made close to serving time.)
