Velvety mashed potatoes made with sour cream and chives! Scallions also work well if you do not have chives on hand.

These potatoes were great. Sealed them in 2 & 4 portion sizes. Froze them and used them when I needed a side dish. These were excellent and no one even suspected that they had previously been frozen and reheated. Excellent recipe Read More

It was just ok... nothing to get excited about. Honestly it was rather bland... the sour cream didn't add any additional flavour Read More

velvety and delicious- followed recipe to a "T" - was done early- kept in oven for 1/2 an hour while rest of dinner finished- they still tasted perfect and were very pretty as a side item to the meat. Read More

You can not go wrong with this recipe. What could be better than chives and sour cream with mashed potatoes. I make roasted garlic potatoes on a regular basis and this was a great change to our usual. Will definately make again. Thanks for the post. Read More

I have always made our mashed potatoes this way. Sooo good! I use the sour cream occasionally but not all the time. I also add about 1/4-1/2 cup melted butter in which I sautee the green onions in for a few seconds. MMmmmm! Read More

My entire family loved this recipe even my husband who had to eat it reheated. It was sooo creamy and delicious. I added 3 Tbsp butter and used dried chives instead of fresh. Thanks so much for the recipe! Read More

A very good variation on an old standby. This dish tastes excellent as is and lends itself to experimenting by adding garlic parmesan cheese etc. The dots of green chives added some nice contrast to the white potatoes. Read More

These are good potatoes. I used yellow Finns instead of Yukons (store didn't have Yukons) light sour cream and 1% milk but not as much as called for. I loved the fresh chives in these. Make sure to add a little salt and pepper- it really brings out the mild flavor of the chives and sour cream. Had these with Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks (this site) and it was such a delicous meal! Read More
