Total Time:


2 pounds red potatoes
4 cloves garlic, peeled
1 (1-ounce) package ranch seasoning and salad dressing mix
1/3 cup half and half*, or more, as needed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives


Place potatoes and garlic in a large stockpot or Dutch oven; cover with cold water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes. Drain well and return to the stockpot.

Add Ranch Seasoning, half and half and butter; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Using an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, blend potatoes until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more half and half as needed until desired consistency is reached.

Serve immediately, garnished with chives, if desired.
