10 portions
  • 2 1/2 kilos potato, peeled and cut into pieces
  • salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cups chives, chopped
  • black pepper, freshly ground


Put the potatoes into a large pot and add water sufficient to cover the potatoes.
Add salt to water and boil over medium heat. Once they boil, reduce the heat and cover. Let cook for about 30 minutes until the potatoes are soft.
Remove the potatoes from the water and set aside 1/2 cup of the water in which they were cooked.
While the potatoes are cooking, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and add the garlic. Sauté until they are opaque, between 1-2 minutes. (Do not brown)
Put the milk in a small pot and over medium-low heat and wait for it to boil.
Return the potatoes to the pot and place over low heat. Puree with a potato masher and add 3/4 cup warm milk, 4 tablespoons butter, cooked garlic and chopped chives. Stir.
Add the rest of the milk and a little of the liquid that was set aside from the water in which the potatoes were cooked. Stir until they have the desired consistency.
If necessary, add more liquid and season with salt and pepper.


Sprinkle with chopped chives when serving
