“This is a recipe from Tyler Florence. We made these tonight and thought they were fantastic, so I couldn't wait to share them! They were the fluffiest, most flavorful potatoes we have ever had.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the quartered potatoes into a large pot and cover them with cold water.
  2. Add the salt and 2 of the bay leaves.
  3. Bring to a boil and simmer until the potatoes are fork tender; about 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Drain well and remove the bay leaves.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small pot, heat the cream, butter, garlic, thyme and remaining 2 bay leaves.
  6. While the potatoes are still warm, press them through a potato ricer or food mill into a mixing bowl.
  7. Add the warm cream a bit at a time, straining out the solids, until the potatoes are fluffy.
  8. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and gently stir in the chives.
  9. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
