Mashed Potatoes with Goat Cheese

Course Side Dish
Servings 4 servings


  • 2 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 5 oz soft fresh goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup (or more) whole milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 tsp chopped fresh sage
  • fresh sage sprigs


  • Wash hands with soap and water.
  • Scrub the potatoes with a clean vegetable brush under running water. Once clean, peel them and cut into 3/4-inch cubes.
  • Place the potatoes into a cooking pot and add salt. Fill with enough water to cover.
  • Bring to a boil. Cook until easily pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes.
  • Drain potatoes and set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, brown the butter over low heat. The butter will foam for a bit before calming down. When the butter turns a nutty brown color remove from heat.
  • Add sage to the butter and pour over the potatoes.
  • Add the pasteurized goat cheese and milk to the potatoes.
  • Mash potatoes with a potato masher until smooth and all ingredients are well incorporated.
  • Garnish with fresh sage sprigs. Serve and enjoy!
