A yummy potato side-dish for steaks, fish, hamburgers. Use fresh chives, not dried. If you don't have fresh chives, then get some. Everyone should have chives in their garden. They're pretty and they taste good. Don't have a garden? Grow them in a large pot (not small — give them room to get big!) in a sunny spot. Chives in the ground survive cold winters just fine, but you can bring the potted chives inside. Just water occasionally and they'll return in the spring.
