Here I have a very easy and fool-proof side that all will love. I like the twist that I played with, by using Goat Cheese. I know right! So tasty too. It ends up being RICH without using a whole stick of butter and cream. 🙂 I only use 2 tbs of butter. You can make this a day ahead; just re-heat and give a good stir, and then finish by topping with the chives. Enjoy! Try my other Thanksgiving Sides! Serves 12 3 lbs peeled baking potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces 1 1/4 tsp, salt 2 tbs butter 3/4 cup (6 oz) goat cheese, secret ingredient 1/4 cup freshly ground pepper 1 cup milk of your choice, 2% works good here 3 tbs finely chopped fresh chives 1. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Add 1/4 tsp salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 mins or until tender; drain. Return the potatoes to pan over low heat; add remaining 1 tsp salt and butter to pan. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher to desired thickness. 2. Add cheese and pepper to potato mixture; stir until cheese melts. Stir in milk; cook 1 min or until heated, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in chives. Enjoy!
