You will need:
- New (Red) Potatoes Unpeeled, I used 6 medium size potatoes to feed 4 to 5 people (use the amount of potatoes you think you'd need for the number of people you will be serving and adjust the white sauce measurements accordingly)
- 5 Heaping Tbsp. of Flour
- Stick of Butter
- 1/2 Cup of Milk (plus a little more)
- Chives (dried or fresh)
- 1 tsp salt
- Pepper (to taste) and More Salt (to taste)
Wash and scrub potatoes, cut them into 1 inch pieces or so, add 1 tsp.of salt to a medium sized pot, add potatoes, cover potatoes with water. Bring to a boil and cook until fork tender about 12-15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
In the same pot you used for cooking potatoes, melt a stick of butter over med-high heat, add 5 heaping Tbsp. of flour and whisk, add 1/2 cup of milk, keep stirring, until smooth, as it thickens you can add more milk or a little bit of water as necessary until it is the desired consistency and thickness. Add salt and pepper to taste, and desired amount of chives (I just sprinkle it in until it looks about like the amount in the above photo)
Return potatoes to the pot of sauce and stir. Add more salt pepper and chives if needed.
