Ingredients
  • 4  pounds  round red or white potatoes
  • 3  cloves garlic, minced
  • 6  tablespoons  butter
  • 1  cup  water
  • 1  teaspoon  salt
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh parsley
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh chives
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh oregano

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.

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 KitchenTest 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.
