These special mashed potatoes aren’t average at all. The Goat Cheese and the BACON…how could this go wrong? They’re also just begging to be rolled into balls and deep fried. Would that be delicious?? That’s next. But right now I’m eating them with a spoon and loving every minute of it. To say I’d addicted would be an understatement. Legitimately my favorite mashed potatoes of ALL TIME. Trust.

Ingredients

  • 2½ pounds Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • ¼ cup butter, melted, unsalted
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 3-4 slices thin bacon or pancetta, sliced thin, cooked crisped & crumbled
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, or more, to taste
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped chives, divided in-half

Instructions

  1. *See Note.
  2. Place water in the bottom of a double boiler. Be sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the upper pan and bring the water to boil.
  3. Rinse the peeled potatoes under cold water and place them in the top of the double boiler, cover and steam the potatoes until tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Transfer cooked potatoes to a large bowl. (If desired, put the potatoes through a potato ricer.) If not ricing the potatoes, mash them with a potato masher. Add the butter and stir gently to combine. Add the cream, goat cheese, bacon (reserve 1 tablespoon bacon for garnish), salt, pepper and ½ teaspoon chopped chives. Mash gently until combined.
  5. Garnish with the other ½ teaspoon chives and the reserved bacon crumbles.
  6. Enjoy!
  7. *Note: The potatoes work just as well if they are boiled in salted water.
  8. Just be sure to drain them well.

I know this year has gone by so fast! Just yesterday we were starting 2017.These potatoes look AMAZING. I mean anything with goat cheese and bacon is amazing, but these look awesome. I've used all different kinds of cheeses in my mashed potatoes, but never thought of goat cheese - what a wonderful idea. And deep fried? Yes please! But I can see how they may just not make it that far!
