Herbed Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Peel potatoes, if desired, and cut up. In a Dutch oven combine potatoes, garlic, 4 tablespoons of the butter, the water, and salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Stir in parsley, chives, oregano, thyme, and rosemary. Let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Using a potato masher, mash mixture until nearly smooth. Stir in mayonnaise and sour cream. Add enough half-and-half (about 1/2 cup) to desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper (about 1/2 teaspoon each).
  3. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter and drizzle over potatoes. Sprinkle with additional fresh herbs, if desired. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

Test Kitchen Tip:

The mashed potatoes can be prepared ahead of serving time and kept warm up to 2 hours in a slow cooker. Before topping with butter, transfer prepared potatoes to a slow cooker, then drizzle with butter and sprinkle with herbs. Cover and keep warm on low-heat setting.
