Creamy Smashed Potatoes with Chives

Chunkier and more rustic than your standard mash, these spuds are enhanced by the color and flavor of fresh chives.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 25 min




  • 3 pounds baby Yukon Gold or fingerling potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat and reduce to a simmer. Cook potatoes 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Drain well and return to the pot.

2. Mash with a potato masher leaving some large pieces. Stir in butter, yogurt, chives, garlic powder, salt and pepper and serve immediately.

    Looks yummy. We serve lots of fish and this would be a great, easy and quick side dish.

    I have also used baby red potatoes in this recipe. also to keep it pareve i have used tofutti sour cream & have had great results. and to step it up a bit more i would use instead of sour cream or greek yogurt i would use cream cheese!!
