Herb and garlic whipped potatoes

As if good old mashed potatoes weren’t addictive enough, this version, flavored with creamy herb and garlic cheese makes them positively irresistible.

4 cups (1 L) peeled and cubed potatoes (about 6 medium)
1 cup (250 mL) milk, heated almost to a simmer
1 pkg. (150 g) herb and garlic soft cheese (like Rondele or Bousin)
1/2 tsp. (2 mL) salt

  1. Place the cubed potatoes in a steamer basket over boiling water and steam until perfectly tender when poked with a fork — about 15 to 20 minutes. (You can boil the potatoes in water to cover — use whichever method you prefer.)
  2. When the potatoes are soft, drain thoroughly and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add about half of the hot milk, the herb and garlic cheese and salt. With an electric mixer, beat the potatoes until smooth and fluffy, adding as much of the additional milk as needed to make the mashed potatoes perfectly creamy.
Makes about 4 servings.
