Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
chopped fresh chives
salt and pepper to taste
These potatoes were great. Sealed them in 2 & 4 portion sizes. Froze them and used them when I needed a side dish. These were excellent and no one even suspected that they had previously been frozen and reheated. Excellent recipe
It was just ok... nothing to get excited about. Honestly, it was rather bland ... the sour cream didn't add any additional flavour
velvety and delicious- followed recipe to a "T" - was done early- kept in oven for 1/2 an hour while rest of dinner finished- they still tasted perfect and were very pretty as a side item to the meat.
You can not go wrong with this recipe. What could be better than chives and sour cream with mashed potatoes. I make roasted garlic potatoes on a regular basis, and this was a great change to our usual. Will definately make again. Thanks for the post.
I have always made our mashed potatoes this way. Sooo good! I use the sour cream occasionally but not all the time. I also add about 1/4-1/2 cup melted butter in which I sautee the green onions in for a few seconds. MMmmmm!
Great alternative to standard mashed potatoes! Followed the recipe exactly but added some butter and they turned out wonderful.
My entire family loved this recipe even my husband who had to eat it reheated. It was sooo creamy and delicious. I added 3 Tbsp butter and used dried chives instead of fresh. Thanks so much for the recipe!
A very good variation on an old standby. This dish tastes excellent as is and lends itself to experimenting by adding garlic, parmesan cheese etc. The dots of green chives added some nice contrast to the white potatoes.
