Description

If you thought you had to mash potatoes by hand to get a beautiful creamy texture, we have a surprise: A mixer can do an excellent job. But don't hurry the process — if you run the mixer too fast, the potatoes get overworked and won't be as fluffy. The addition of fresh chives adds a little surprise while keeping the mashed potatoes squarely in the classics camp, though you can leave them out if you prefer the potatoes plain. The recipe is a Yummly original created by David Bonom.

    Turned out just fine. A bit plain, but easily fixed with some more spices.

    Make sure you have the right amount of potatoes or adjust the milk amount accordingly. That's where I failed the first time. I also tried to improvise with a different mixer. probably not the best idea either. #nailedit

    For my brother, I substituted non-dairy butter and oat milk to make them vegan. Instead of putting the potatoes and milk in a stand mixer, I threw the potatoes back in the Dutch oven after draining, added the milk/butter mixture, and then used a hand mixer to beat it together and that worked out nicely. Everyone at Christmas loved them!
