Author Notes: The goat cheese in these mashed potatoes cuts the fat in half and tricks literally everyone who eats them - no one can tell it isn't all butter and cream! They make a great holiday side dish, especially when you already have a spread of rich dishes. alyson mance

Serves: 8

  • 6 small/medium eastern potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 2 sprigs rosemary, chopped (makes about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 1/2 cups half and half
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 head roasted garlic
  • 3/4 cup goat cheese (about 5 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper, to start
  • chopped chives, for garnish
  1. In a large pan, heat enough salted water to cover the potatoes. Once boiling, add the potatoes and cook until fork-tender.
  2. Meanwhile, combine all other ingredients in a medium saucepan and simmer until cheese and butter have melted and mixture is warm throughout, 10-12 minutes. Once potatoes are ready, drain the water and add them back to the pan. Slowly pour in the milk mixture in increments and mash using a potato masher. Once potatoes have reached desired thickness, adjust salt and pepper to taste, garnish with chives and serve immediately.
