Ingredients

How to make it

  • Put the potatoes in a large saucepan and add cold water to cover them by at least 4 inches. Bring to a boil over medium heat and continue boiling until the potatoes can be pierced through the center with a sharp knife, about 20 to 25 minutes. Be careful not to overcook, or they’ll be mushy.
  • Working quickly, place the potatoes in a colander, shaking it gently to drain excess liquid. Immediately return the potatoes to the pot (but do not put it back on the heat).
  • Using a rigid whisk or handheld potato masher, break the potatoes into smaller pieces. Mash the butter into the potatoes a few pieces at a time. Make a well in the center of the potatoes and drizzle in the cream, mashing it in until the desired consistency is reached.The potatoes should remain a little lumpy.
  • Fold the parsley and chives into the potatoes, and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
