#3699 - Smashed Potatoes

(by Shirley McNevich)

4 red potatoes (about 6oz.; washed, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces)
1/2 cup Breakstone's sour cream
1/2 cup milk
2 TBSP minced chives
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

In a microwave safe bowl add just the potato pieces--cover the bowl with Saran wrap and use a sharp knife to cut a slit in the middle of the wrap. Microwave on high 10-12 minutes or until tender. Remove from microwave and let them stand for 2 minutes. Remove the wrap, then add the sour cream, milk, minced chives, salt and pepper. Mash the mixture with a potato masher, then stir well. Serve immediately. Note: these are meant to be eaten right away as the leftovers will be "gummy".
