Make this a staple at all your fall and winter holiday gatherings. Because the skin of Yukon gold potatoes is so thin, there’s no need to peel them first.

Ingredients

Uncooked Yukon gold potato(es)

680 gm, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) chunks

Low-fat buttermilk

¾ cup(s), warmed

Unsalted butter

2 Tbsp

Kosher salt

1 tsp, or to taste

Black pepper

½ pinch, or to taste

Chives

¼ cup(s), fresh, chopped

Instructions

  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and fill with enough water to cover them; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes; drain.
  2. Return potatoes to same saucepan; add buttermilk and butter. Coarsely mash potatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper; fold in chives. Yields about 125 ml (1/2 cup) per serving.
