Smashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives

Smashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives

by Pam on October 10, 2012

My kids are big fans of mashed potatoes and they are always very happy when I serve them with dinner. I decided to change it up and bit and make smashed potatoes with butter, sour cream, and chives. I used Yukon gold potatoes because they are rich, creamy, and so delicious.  I served this side dish with the Italian Meatloaf[1] and the Sautéed Kale, Grape Tomatoes, Garlic, and Parmesan[2] for a delicious and comforting meal.  We all LOVED these potatoes and they tasted great (with the leftover meatloaf) the next day too.

Heat a large pot of salted water until boiling.  Add the potatoes and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until fork tender and cooked through.  Drain the potatoes; add the sour cream, butter, chives, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Mash by hand with a potato masher until creamy.  Serve immediately.  Enjoy.
