Have your boyfriend peel and cube 4-5 fingerling potatoes.
Boil potatoes in one can (14.5oz) chicken broth for 15-20 minutes, covered.
Turn heat to low and mash with a potato masher or puree with a nifty SmartStick, like Mr.B got me. (You can leave some potato cubes intact.)
Saute one large sliced leek in butter. (Try not to forget about it and let it burn… Ahem.)
Add sauteed leek and 1 c. cream or half & half (I used cream and it was cream-ay!) to the potatoes and liquid.
Add salt and pepper and french fried onions if you wish, and enjoy!!
The whole thing took about half an hour and it was very filling and yummy!
