• 3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup half-and-half

Boil potatoes until fork tender.

Heat the butter and half-and-half over medium heat until hot, but not boiling.

Add hot liquid to potatoes and whip with an electric hand mixer until smooth.

Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

Add chives and mix before serving.
