Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes
GOAT CHEESE MASHED POTATOES
The Palm Restaurant Recipe
5 pounds Idaho or Yukon gold potatoes (peeled and eyed)
1/2 pound salted butter
1 1/4 cups whole milk
kosher salt to taste
1 cup goat cheese (softened)
1 tablespoon salted butter (room temp)
3 tablespoons chopped chives
Boil your potatoes by placing them in a large pot with enough water to cover them plus about 2 inches before turning on the heat. Boil until fork tender and strain.
In a small pot on the stovetop, heat the milk, adding 1/2 pound salted butter. When the butter has melted and incorporated, turn heat to simmer until ready for use.
In a large bowl with a hand or stand mixer, whip boiled potatoes until smooth while slowly adding the butter/milk mixture from the stovetop. Add 1 cup of softened goat cheese and remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Mix until smooth, adding salt to taste. Transfer to a serving dish and top with chopped chives.
