  • 2 and 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, washed and quartered
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 32 Ounces chicken stock
  • 1 stick brown butter (cook and swirl on medium heat until it smells nutty)
  • 1/2 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Small handful fresh chives, chopped to garnish


Add potatoes, chicken stock and a big pinch salt to a large pot set on medium-high heat.

Bring to a boil.

Cook for 15 minutes, then drain. 

With potatoes still in the pot, add a small pinch of salt, a big pinch of pepper, Parmesan cheese and brown butter.

Smash everything together, then stir in chives.
