Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes


  • 2 1/2 lbs gold potatoes (about 6 medium sized), peeled and cubed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 4 to 6 ounces goat cheese


Place potatoes in a saucepan. Add 1 teaspoon of salt, and just enough water to cover the potatoes.

Cover and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to medium and cook for about 20 minutes, or until very tender. Drain.

Add potatoes back into the pan.

Place the butter and milk into a microwave safe dish and heat for 1 minute (or place in a small sauce pan over low heat, and cook until the butter is melted).

Add the milk mixture, remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and sour cream to the potatoes.

Whip the potatoes with an electric mixer. Add cheese. Mix well.

Serve immediately.
