Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes peeled if desired
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 Tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Chives for topping

Instructions

  1. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes and place them in a large pot with the chicken broth. Add enough water to cover the potatoes and add about 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 10 to 12 minutes, until the potatoes fall apart easily when pierced with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the milk and butter in a small saucepan, until the butter is melted. Keep warm.
  3. As soon as the potatoes are tender, drain them in a colander.
  4. Place hot potatoes in mixing bowl and mix until smooth, about 1 minute.
  5. Slowly add in milk/butter mixture and sour cream.
  6. Turn up speed and beat for about 30 seconds, or until milk is absorbed. Gradually turn up speed and mix for 1 minute longer.
  7. Switch to whipping attachment and beat for about 1 minute, or until fluffy.
  8. Serve warm topped with extra butter (if desired) and chopped chives.
