Garlic and Chive Mashed Potatoes

Preparation Time: 45 minutes

Serves 4-6



  • 20-25 baby red skinned potatoes, washed and halved
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 8 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 minced fresh chives
  • pepper


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook potatoes until fork tender.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat half and half and garlic on medium heat. Garlic will soften.

Drain potatoes and return to pot. Add butter, chives, and pepper. Add garlic from milk. Mash with a potatoes masher, adding a little of the hot half and half at a time until potatoes reach desired consistancy.

Stir in cheese and serve immediately.
