Feel free to add a little sour cream to these potatoes for extra flavor and richness.

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 medium cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or freeze-dried minced chives
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons sour cream, optional
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup milk, warmed
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Peel potatoes; cut into chunks and put in a saucepan. Rinse and drain. Cover potatoes with water and boil for about 15 to 20 minutes, until tender.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan with garlic and chives. Cook over low heat for about 1 minute. Drain and mash the potatoes; beat in sour cream, if using, and then add the butter mixture and milk until desired consistency is reached. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
Serves 6.

Nice Addition to turkey dinner, Member turbomutt

Doubled everything for a big meal hoping for lots of left-overs for lunch. It was a great hit. Definitely will cook them again.
