  • 2 pounds red potatoes if small cook whole and if larger, cut in half (do not peel)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 1/2-3/4 cup milk or half and half
  • 6 Tbsp chopped scallions or fresh chives
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Cook potatoes in large pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain. Return potatoes to pot and mash roughly; these are not meant to be the consistency of regular mashed potatoes.
  • Add butter and mix well with potatoes.
  • Add goat cheese and mix thoroughly.
  • Add milk as required to get consistency you desire.
  • Add 4 Tbsp chopped scallions and mix in gently.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Garnish with additional scallions.
