Sour Cream and Chive Smashed Potatoes

I used to feel that making mashed potatoes was too much of a process for a quick dinner. But I love this quick way of making smashed potatoes. It’s one pot and super easy and quick. It only takes about 15 minutes.

Recipe: Sour Cream & Chive Smashed Potatoes


  • 4 Red Potatoes
  • 2 tbs Unsalted Butter
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup Sour Cream
  • 2 tbs Chives, chopped
  • Kosher Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper to taste


  1. Cut potatoes into quarters. Place in a pot and cover with water. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  2. Bring to a boil, then lower heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes (until potatoes are tender). Drain water from pot.
  3. Add in milk and butter and mash with a potato masher.
  4. Add in sour cream and mash a little more.
  5. Add chives, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  6. Serve hot.
