Chive Mashed Potatoes

Chive Mashed Potatoes

Snips of chives add both color and flavor to creamy mashed potatoes. You can use fresh chives from your IHARVEST in this recipe.

Prep Time: approx. 15 Minutes. Cook Time: approx. 20 Minutes. Ready in: approx. 45 Minutes. Makes 8 servings. 

5  pounds Yukon gold potatoes
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup unsalted butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbs. chopped fresh chives

Peel the potatoes and cut into large chunks. Place the potatoes in a large pan and fill with enough cold water to cover the potatoes completely. Bring the water to a boil over high heat. Cook for 20-30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain well and place in a large bowl.

While the potatoes are cooking, heat the heavy cream, butter, and garlic in a saucepan over medium heat. Do not let the cream boil. Keep warm.

Mash the potatoes with a potato masher. Stir in the warm cream a little at a time until the desired consistency is reached.

Season the potatoes with salt and pepper as desired. Gently stir in the chives and serve the potatoes hot.
