- Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Add the salt. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 20 minutes longer.
- Drain the potatoes and press through a potato ricer into a large bowl. Set aside.
- Heat the butter, cream, and milk in a small pot over low heat until simmering.
- Pour the cream mixture over the potatoes and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Garnish with chives, if desired.
- Note: A potato ricer gives these potatoes a super fluffy texture, but you can use a hand masher if you don’t own one.
