Sour Cream & Chive Mashed Potatoes


  • 3 pounds white potatoes, peeled and quartered (or halved, depending on size)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon dried chives (more if you desire)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Add the potatoes to a large pot, and fill with water until completely covered.
  2. Boil over medium-high heat until fork tender.
  3. Drain potatoes well.
  4. Add the butter and allow to melt slightly, then add the sour cream, chives and seasonings.
  5. Mash the potatoes, making sure the sour cream, butter and seasonings are evenly distributed, until they reach desired consistency (use an immersion blender for whipped potatoes).
