Mashed Potatoes with Goat Cheese

To keep mashed potatoes warm, or to reheat cold or leftover potatoes, transfer to a large bowl set over a pot filled with a few inches of simmering water. (Make sure the bowl does not come into contact with the water.)

  • prep: 15 mins
    total time: 30 mins
  • servings: 4




  • 1 1/2 pounds baking potatoes (3 medium), peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 ounces soft goat cheese
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced


  1. Step 1

    In a large saucepan, combine potatoes, 1 teaspoon salt, and enough cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce to medium-low, and simmer until tender, but not falling apart, 14 to 16 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Drain and return potatoes to saucepan over medium-low heat; add milk and goat cheese. Mash with a potato masher until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper; fold in scallions, and serve.

    Too much milk...following the recipe made more of a soup. I had to add another large potato (hastily microwaved), and the result was still to thin for my liking. I'll try 1/2 cup milk next time.
