  • Place the potatoes into a large pot and fill with enough lightly salted water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender enough to easily pierce with a fork, about 10 minutes. Drain and mash partially, then add the butter and milk. Continue to mash until smooth. Stir in the goat cheese, chives and dill.

Excellent! These were very creamy as the recipe title states! I cut the recipe in half and since I didn't have goat cheese light cream cheese fit the bill. I also lightened them up by using Land O Lakes light butter and skim milk. I added a little salt and pepper and loved the fresh dill and chives. This was the perfect accompaniment to breaded pork chops! Read More

Not as good as the goat cheese idea sounds like it could be - doesn't add to the flavour much. This recipe is decent as far as mashed potatoes go but nothing to rave about. Read More

Mmmmm these were some gooood mashed potatoes! Hubs won't eat goat cheese so cream cheese was an easy substitution. I used unpeeled baby Yukon Golds and didn't measure the rest of the ingredients just added them to taste along with salt and freshly ground pepper. The creaminess of the potatoes made even creamier with the cream cheese along with the fresh flavors of dill and chives made these irresistably delicious. Read More

I did not have chives or dill at home but I made them still and used whipped cream cheese instead of goat cheese left the skins on and whipped them with an electric hand mixer and they were the creamiest potatoes ever! No gravy needed Read More

Oh my goodness. I used cream cheese and added a few tablespoons of butter that I had sauted fresh garlic in. My usually ho-hum mashed potatos were transformed into something heavenly. The kids didn't even want gravy on them they were so good by themselves! Read More

Great! Used Parmasan and a touch of basil. My theory is that almost anything is better with Basil! So I skipped the dill...LOL Read More

I like creamy potatoes my family likes them a little stiffer & thicker I just cut down on the milk drained most of the water when I mashed them I left some little chunks not hard just something to bite on. My husband said his father would like these because they are kind "soupy". The flavor is ok just don't add gravey or you have potatoe soup. Maybe I did something wrong & will try again. The picture they show is not the best! Looks a like a big glob. Read More
