  • 3 tablespoons chives, chopped 


  • Bring salted water to boil. Add potatoes. Gently boil, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Do not overcook or potatoes will be soggy.
  • In a medium skillet pan, over low to medium heat, add olive oil, rosemary and garlic. Cook until garlic begins to slightly brown, approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Turn heat to low and add butter and cream. Heat until butter is melted and mixture is hot. When potatoes are done, strain, and add to large mixing bowl with ¾ of cream mixture. Whip or mash until desired consistency. Check consistency and add remainder of cream mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.
