EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

To make 'em cheesy, fold in 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese after stirring in the half-and-half.

Try chopped fresh parsley instead of the chives.

These go nicely with sliced ham and steamed green beans.

Can't find potato topper? Use 8 oz sour cream and 1 teaspoon dried chives. Or you like, skip the chives and just add an additional tablespoon chopped green onion for Savory Ranch Smashed Potatoes.
