Goat cheese adds a subtle tangy creaminess to mashed potatoes, but you can substitute one package (250 g) cream cheese.

  • Portion size 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 10 baking potatoes (about 6 lb/2.7 kg), peeled and halved crosswise
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 log soft goat cheese (10 oz/300 g)
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Method

In large pot of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes and garlic until tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain and return to pot; dry over low heat, shaking pan, about 1 minute. Press through ricer or mash until smooth. Add sour cream, goat cheese and butter; stir until butter is melted. Stir in chives, salt and pepper.

Scrape into 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish or casserole dish; smooth top. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days; bake for 10 to 15 minutes longer.)

Cover and bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until hot and light golden, about 30 minutes, or microwave at high for 10 to 12 minutes.
