Ingredients

How to make it

  • Peel and cube the potatoes and put in a pan, covering them with water.
  • Add smashed garlic cloves
  • Add salt to water and bring to a boil.
  • Boil for approx 10-15 minutes, or until soft
  • In another pan, add butter and allow to melt and brown slightly (adds a nice nutty flavor)
  • Add buttermilk and warm on medium heat. Do not allow to boil, and do not over cook as it will curdle.
  • When potatoes are done, mash while stirring in goats cheese and buttermilk/butter mixture, until you reach desired consistency.
  • Add pepper to taste
  • Serve hot!

    I haven't made this with potatoes yet, but I know I will - it sounds awesome. Just wanted to mention I had a head of cauliflower to use up so I did smashed cauliflower in place of the potatoes, then followed the rest of the recipe - wow! Really good!

    Herb coated goats cheese is better, in my opinion. DM did the same thing. I'll be using that next time, too. Glad you guys liked them!

    Made these tonight with two new recipes of my own... we wanted "rustic", so we made them "smashed" instead of mashed by leaving them with skin and chunky. They turned out great and were the perfect compliment to my other dishes, one of which has slight French influences. Glad I decided to include them. Thanks for the recipe, pk!

    Glad you liked them, DM! Thanks for the five-fork review! And yea, that butter/buttermilk combo adds a lot of flavor, but you have to watch it when it's heating up. Once I melt and brown the butter I put the heat on low and just warm the buttermilk in it.

    Definitely 5 forks, people. We loved this recipe, but watch the butter/buttermilk mixture as stated. It does tend to curdle very quickly. I used goat's cheese with fine herbs since it caught my eye in the store. May try the peppercorn variety next time. Thanks, Patrick. Terrific recipe!!

    This recipe was really good. I kinda guessed at the buttermilk measurement since when I made them I was just tossing stuff together hoping it would be good. It came out amazing...so much flavor. Enjoy...and take a pic for this page!
