Goat Cheese + Chive Mashed Potatoes


¤ SERVES 8 ¤

¤ 6 medium Yukon Gold potatoes {about 3 pounds}

¤ Kosher salt

¤ 1 cup milk

¤ 6 Tbsp. butter

¤ 6 oz. goat cheese, crumbled

¤ 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

¤ 1/4 cup finely chopped chives

Put potatoes in a large pot & add enough generously salted water to cover potatoes by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium & simmer until potatoes are tender throughout when pierced with a fork, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain well & set aside until cool enough to handle.

In a medium pot, bring milk & butter to a simmer over medium heat. Watch closely to make sure mixture doesn’t boil over, then remove from heat. Meanwhile, working over a large bowl, peel potatoes, then press them through a potato ricer or sieve with medium-size holes. Add milk mixture, goat cheese, 1-1/2 tsp. salt, & pepper & gently fold together until combined. Stir in chives, transfer to a large bowl, & serve.
