Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes

>> Monday, January 4, 2010

Sometimes plain ol' mashed potatoes are pretty boring - unless they're smothered in butter, but then again, everything's better with butter. Tonight I decided to spice up the mashed potatoes a bit with some goat cheese and chives. I purposely didn't tell Andrew that the potatoes had goat cheese in them since he claims he doesn't like it. Luckily Andrew gobbled them right up without any complaints!

Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes - serves 4
4-5 baking potatoes, peeled and large diced
4 T butter
4 oz goat cheese (I used plain but herbed goat cheese would be good too)
10 chives, snipped
salt and pepper

Place potatoes in a medium saucepan and fill pan with just enough water to cover potatoes. Bring to a boil and lower heat to medium-high. Cook until potatoes are fork tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain potatoes and discard liquid. Place potatoes back in warm pan (but off the heat) and mash them with a fork. Add butter and goat cheese and stir to combine. Slowly add milk one tablespoon at a time to reach the desired consistency. Stir in chives, reserving some for garnish. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
