Ingredients

  1. 2 1/2 pounds russet (baking) potatoes
  2. 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced well-washed white, pale green part of leek
  3. 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced

  7. 2/3 cup milk
  8. 6 ounces crumbled mild goat cheese
  9. 1/4 cup minced fresh chives

  3. Drain the potatoes, return them to the pan. Mashed the potatoes. Stir in the milk, the remaining 3 tablespoon butter, the leek mixture, the goat cheese, the chives, and salt and pepper to taste.

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.
