DIRECTIONS

  • Bring water to a boil as you slice potatoes thick or thin, leaving the skin on. (I keep my slices "potato chip shaped" and not too thin!).
  • Boil potatoes until tender (when a fork can be inserted with ease), about 15-20 minutes.
  • Drain in colander.
  • Place potatoes in a big bowl and add plenty of butter/margarine. (I use at least 2-3 tablespoons maybe more, depending on number of potatoes used and whatever our mood happens to be!).
  • Then sprinkle chives on top of potatoes to taste and for a little more color.
  • *Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • *Can add some bacon bits and shredded cheese on top or mixed if you like. I haven't ever tried that, but sounds like it might be good.
