Smashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives

My kids are big fans of mashed potatoes and they are always very happy when I serve them with dinner. I decided to change it up and bit and make smashed potatoes with butter, sour cream, and chives. I used Yukon gold potatoes because they are rich, creamy, and so delicious.  I served this side dish with the Italian Meatloaf and the Sautéed Kale, Grape Tomatoes, Garlic, and Parmesan for a delicious and comforting meal.  We all LOVED these potatoes and they tasted great (with the leftover meatloaf) the next day too.

Heat a large pot of salted water until boiling.  Add the potatoes and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until fork tender and cooked through.  Drain the potatoes; add the sour cream, butter, chives, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Mash by hand with a potato masher until creamy.  Serve immediately.  Enjoy.
