Fresh Herb Mashed Potatoes

  • ACTIVE: 15 MIN
  • FAST
  1. 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  2. Kosher salt
  3. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  4. 1/2 cup whole milk
  5. Freshly ground pepper
  6. Chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as chives, parsley and tarragon
  1. In a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with cool water, season generously with salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to moderately high and boil the potatoes until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain well, then return the potatoes to the saucepan.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small, sturdy glass bowl, melt the butter in the milk in a microwave oven, about 1 minute. Pour the milk mixture over the potatoes. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, stir in chopped fresh herbs and serve.
