Ginger Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are an ultimate comfort food that can be made in so many ways; mainly reminiscent of many thanksgiving dinners and cold winter nights. However, these mashed potatoes are enriched with fresh ginger and white wine that makes them the perfect comfort food for a cool summer night instead.
1lb dutch yellow potatoes
1/3 cup ginger root, minced
3 tbsp chives, small chopped
1/2 c white wine
1/3 c mayonnaise 
2 tbsp kosher salt
1. Bring potatoes to a boil. When just soft (check with a fork), drain- do not rinse potatoes. Return potatoes to the stove top on a low flame. Mash potatoes, leaving some small chunks. 
2. Stir in mayonnaise completely. Gradually stir in white wine. 
3. Mix in fresh ginger, salt, and chives into mashed potatoes. 
*Leave some ginger root and chives to the side to sprinkle before serving.

Bon Appetit!
