1 1/2 cups thinly sliced well-washed white, pale green part of leek

i'm a sucker for mashed potatoes, and my fiance's family has introduced me to the world of PUTTING THINGS IN YOUR MASH - so this is just another thing that we can try. i've done the whole garlic butter thing before - but goat cheese really does make sense. i'll have to try this one.

Yum! This sounds so good! I'm going to give these a whirl after the holiday, you know-before my working out resolution kicks in.

Goat cheese seems to be popping up a lot recently. I actually don't eat mashed potatoes that often, so I don't think its plain form is boring.
