INFUSING OLIVE OIL with rosemary, garlic, and leeks adds more flavor to these tasty spuds.


Cook potatoes in a pot of boiling salted water until fork-tender, 10–12 minutes. Drain potatoes; return to pot. Cook potatoes over medium-low heat, stirring, to remove excess moisture, 1–2 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat oil, leeks, garlic, and rosemary in a nonstick skillet over medium-low until leeks soften and oil is fragrant, 10 minutes; discard rosemary sprigs.

Off heat, add oil mixture, milk, and sour cream to potatoes. Crush potatoes with a potato masher to desired consistency; stir in chives. Season potatoes with salt and pepper.
