Oh my dear...such rich and creamy potatoes. These were a definate hit at dinner last night. I served them with Loz's Slow Cooked Irish Guinness Stew Recipe #182674. My chives are just coming up...and what a wonderful way to have the first ones of the season. Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe.

  4. Drain the potatoes and return them to the hot pot to let them dry out a bit.
  5. Mash the potatoes with cream or half-and-half, cream cheese, chives, salt and freshly ground black pepper.
