Basil Chive Red Potato Mash

Everyone goes crazy for these potatoes and I can't blame them. They're creamy and rich but the fresh herbs give them a really fresh taste[. I really love the color and texture that the skins from the potatoes give the mash, and it also means less work because you get to skip the peeling!]

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds red-skinned new potatoes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
  • A small handful chopped fresh chives (about 3 tablespoons)
  • A small handful roughly chopped basil leaves (about 2 1/2 tablespoons)
Directions
  • Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan and pour in enough cold water to cover them by a couple of inches. Toss in a handful of salt. Bring the water to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender when poked with a knife, about 25 minutes.

  • Drain the potatoes and return to the pan. Add the cream and butter and let the whole pot sit over very low heat until warmed through.

  • Add chives and basil to the pot with the potatoes and mash the potatoes coarsely. Season with salt and pepper.
