butter herb mashed potatoesButter Herb Mashed Potatoes

Butter herb mashed potatoes are the perfect side dish for any main meat meal, chicken, poultry, beef or pork.  Whether serving as is or with gravy, butter herb mashed potatoes make a great dish for most meals and it is a great dish when you are asked to bring a dish to pass. If your meal is fancy for several guests or just you and your husband you can’t go wrong with this and it is so easy. I’ve chosen to use minced chives in this dish because I always have chives growing fresh in my kitchen, 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.

A very simple but elegant side dish that would go with any meat dish.
Ingredients
  • 3 pounds potatoes
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 tbsp. minced chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Peel the potatoes, cut into chunks and place them in a large saucepan. Add enough water to cover the potatoes.
  2. 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.
  3. Drain well, return the potatoes to the pan and stir over medium-low heat to evaporate the excess moisture.
  4. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher, ricer or electric mixer on low speed. Add the butter and milk.

Chef’s Tip:  If you find you don’t have any buttermilk but would like to try it. Just add 1 tablespoon white vinegar to a cup of milk and stir, let it stand five minutes, it will thicken a bit and then use as buttermilk. Quick and delicious.
