Mashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives

mashed potatoes

I think these potatoes really speak for themselves. There are countless ways to make great mashed potatoes. This is my favorite way though. Lots of fresh chives and sour cream with Yukon gold potatoes is the perfect compliment to just about anything. I leave the peels on the potatoes, but you can peel them if you like. I just used my potato masher, I like them to be a little chunky. You can also use a food mill to bet a finer texture. They are so perfect, they don’t even need gravy!
