Ingredients:  
4 lbs. red potatoes (uniform size and no larger than approximately 2 inches in diameter)
1/4 cup plus 2 tbls. olive oil
1 tbls. plus 1 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425. In a medium size bowl toss potatoes in 1/4 cup of the olive oil along with 1 tbls. of the Kosher salt and pepper. Transfer potatoes to a rimmed baking sheet; set bowl aside for later use. Roast potatoes for 20 minutes, then shake the pan to rearrange the potatoes. Continue to roast until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes longer. Remove. While the potatoes are baking, add the remaining olive oil, remaining salt, chives, butter and garlic to the reserved bowl. Working on a clean work surface, use the back of a large metal spoon to smash each hot potato slightly. Transfer the smashed potatoes to the bowl containing the reserved garlic mixture and mix thoroughly to combine. Fold in the sour cream. Serve immediately
