Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes

I have said it and I will say it again.  I love potatoes.  They are tasty, filling, and go great with cheese.  A couple of days ago I posted Braised Short Ribs.  They were delicious and created some of the tastiest gravy that I have ever had.  What goes great with gravy?  Potatoes.  What goes great with braised short rib gravy?  Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes.

Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes

They were creamy and delicious.  They had just enough goat cheese to taste the cheese without overpowering the potatoes.  Amazing!!!

Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes

  • 3 lbs Mashed Potatoes (peeled and quartered)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 oz goat cheese

Peel and quarter the potatoes.  Place them in a large pan and cover them with water.  Bring to a boil and continue to boil until tender.  Roughly 20-25 minutes.

When the potatoes are done drain and add butter heavy cream and the goat cheese.  Season with salt and pepper.

Add the goat cheese and mash

Mash with a potato masher.

Mash by hand

You can use a mixer to get them extra creamy, but I find the lumps to be really nice.  It shows that the potatoes are real potatoes.  Not re-hydrated potato flakes.  Nothing wrong with re-hydrated potato flakes.  They make a nice crust for a fish fry (but that is another post), but for mashed potatoes I prefer the real thing.

Goat Cheese Mash

The goat cheese added a great flavor to the potatoes. You have to try this out.

      Jason – A chevre des neiges would perfect in these potatoes. I had them a restaurant last week and I had to try them at home.
      Chris – They were the perfect nap inducing food. I ate about 2lbs of them myself.
