Creamy Garlic And Chive Mashed Potatoes

I don't make mashed potatoes very often for various reasons but when I do they are the very traditional ones I grew up eating as a child with butter, milk, salt and pepper being the main ingredients added. This particular night I decided it's time for a change so I put them through a potato ricer instead of mashing them and added freshly crushed garlic and fresh chives for a different flavor. It was a nice change from our usual ones. I served them with the Delicious Pot Roast. I also used some of the rich broth from the roast to make a delicious gravy for them. They were so yummy!

3½ lbs. Yukon Gold Potatoes,
peeled and quartered
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 Tablespoons soft butter
1-1½ cups sour cream
fresh chives
sea salt
freshly cracked pepper

In a medium sized saucepan, cover the potatoes with water and cook until soft. Drain and press through a potato ricer. Add the butter and seasonings and stir until butter is melted. Add the sour cream and fold until combined. Serve and enjoy!

~Be Blessed!~

    1. Thank you Betsy :) sour cream, garlic, chives-what's not to like?! other than the fact that they're starchy and turn to sugar the minute you swallow them. sigh

  2. I could eat the whole bowl full and be perfectly happy. They look wonderful!
