Creamy Stovetop Potatoes

by Laura

I love it when I can find an easy way to make a delicious side dish like these creamy stovetop potatoes.  Sometimes that can be the most troubling part of meal planning – planning the sides. I always fall back on frozen or canned veggies when I don’t plan anything specific or if just don’t know what to serve.

Today, I have a potato dish for you that is made in  about 25 minutes in one pot. It also uses items that I tend to always keep on hand. This creamy dish was a hit with the family and everyone was asking for more.

  1. In a large stock pot, add potatoes, milk, cream, butter, and garlic.
  2. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes until potatoes are tender.
  3. Season with salt to taste and top each serving with a sprinkling of the chopped chives or green onion. Serves 6.
