Crushed Red Potatoes With Buttermilk

This simple preparation makes a smashing and virtually labor-free alternative to traditional mashed potatoes.


  • 2 pounds red potatoes, scrubbed (about 6)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste


Step 1
Cover potatoes with cold water in a large saucepan. Add salt and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. 
Step 2
Drain the potatoes in a colander and transfer to a medium bowl. 
Step 3
Coarsely crush the potatoes with a potato masher or the back of a large spoon. Gently stir in buttermilk and chives. Season with salt and pepper.
