  • 8-10 Yukon Gold Potatoes, small to medium in size
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives, chopped

  • Bring large pot of water to a boil (enough water to completely submerge potatoes) Liberally salt water, about 1 tablespoon. Boil potatoes until fork tender.
  • In a separate pan, brown 1 stick of salted butter over medium low to medium heat. When butter is properly browned, it will be bubbly and brown on top. When it gets to this point, remove the butter from the heat. Add garlic to brown butter and set aside.
