Butter & Herb Potatoes

Whether serving as is or with gravy, butter and herb mashed potatoes make a great side dish. We’ve chosen to use minced chives in this dish, but if you have a favorite herb, you can easily substitute it.

You might try substituting the regular milk with buttermilk, sour cream or whipping cream. Other herbs to try include garlic, parsley, chives, oregano and thyme. Kids might like a sprinkling of shredded cheddar cheese on top.


3 pounds potatoes
½ cup unsalted butter
½ cup milk
3 tbsp. minced chives
Salt and pepper to taste


– Peel the potatoes, cut into chunks and place them in a large saucepan. Add enough water to cover the potatoes.
– Cover the pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Continue boiling until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 15-20 minutes.
– Drain well, return the potatoes to the pan and stir over medium-low heat to evaporate the excess moisture.
– Mash the potatoes using a potato masher, ricer or electric mixer on low speed. Add the butter and milk.
– Mix in the chives and season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a warmed serving bowl and serve.
