Side Dish Challenge: Mashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives


What You'll Need:
  • 5 lb. bag red potatoes
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp. chives + more for sprinkling
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 egg + water mix

1.  Peel potatoes, but not completely.  I like some skin in my mashed potatoes when I use red-skinned.  If you don't, then you can peel them all the way.  Whatever your preference.  Put them in a large stock pot and cover with cool water.  Bring the pot to a boil and cook potatoes until fork tender.

2.  When potatoes are finished, drain and return to hot pot.  Add the milk and butter and beat with a hand-mixer until smooth.  Next, add the sour cream and fold in with a spatula.  Fold in the chives, and add salt and pepper.

3.  Transfer potatoes to a large bowl and brush top with egg wash.  Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 15-minutes, or until a crust forms on top.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with chives.
