Sour Cream and Chive Potatoes

Sour Cream and Chive Potatoes


These potatoes are creamy and delish! If you don't have time to peel the potatoes, or if you don't have those types of potatoes, you can use any kind and just smash them instead. 


5lbs russet potatoes

1 stick butter

8 oz sour cream

⅓ c chives, chopped 

½ c heavy cream

2 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp garlic powder



Peel the potatoes and remove any spots. Cut them into small chunks and place in a pot. Cover with water and drain to rinse off extra starch. Fill the pot to cover with water again and bring to a boil. 

Boil for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are a little more than fork tender. They will mush easily when stabbed with a fork. 

Drain the potatoes and place back in the pot. Add the butter, sour cream, and heavy cream and whip with a hand mixer until fluffy. 

Keep beating with the mixer and add the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chives. Whip until combined, about 15 seconds.
