  • 4 medium Potatoes peel and cut into squares
  • 1-2 tablespoons Garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon Chives minced
  • 2 tablespoons Butter or Margarine
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • Milk enough for the consistency you like


  • Place the potatoes into a medium saucepan, cover with water and boil until tender about 10 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the garlic. Saute over medium-low heat until fragrant but don’t let the garlic burn.
  • Once potatoes are done, drain them and add the garlic butter, chives, salt, and pepper. Mash to break up.
