Mashed Red-skinned Potatoes with Scallions
- Active Time 10m
- Total Time 20m
Makes 8 servings
- 2 pounds new red potatoes
- 1/2 cup of heavy cream
- 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup scallions, greens only, cut on the bias
Place the potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with cold water, liberally salt the water and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Reduce the heat and simmer the potatoes until tender but not mushy.
While the potatoes are cooking, gently heat the cream and butter over low heat.
Drain the potatoes and return to the saucepan. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes while slowly adding the cream and butter mixture.
Add the sour cream, salt and pepper, and mash to your preference. Just be sure not to over do your mashing as this can make the potatoes gluey.
Gently stir in the sliced scallions and serve.
