Mashed Potatoes

Cook Time: 20 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 6-8 servings


* 4 pounds golden creamer potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
* 1 bay leaf
* Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
* 2 cups heavy cream
* 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
* 2 tablespoons chopped chives


Put the potatoes into a large pot, add the bay leaf, 2 tablespoons
salt, and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat
and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain them
well and remove the bay leaf. Meanwhile, heat the cream and butter in
a small saucepan. Put the potatoes through a ricer or food mill into a
bowl. Add the hot cream and season with salt and pepper. Mix together
with a spoon and add the chives.
