This is one of the best potato dishes I’ve ever made and it’s so simple. I had really delicious goat cheese in my fridge from Lost Ruby Ranch that I picked up at the farmers market and decided to try it in a potato dish. The result was so amazing, I just had to share the recipe with you. I’m telling you, these Goat Cheese Smashed Potatoes are Thanksgiving worthy!
All I did was boil some small Yukon gold potatoes until they were fork tender, smash them with a fork, then mixed them with a little chicken broth, goat cheese, black pepper, and fresh chives. They were positively transformed into the most luscious potatoes. I literally gasped when I took a test bite. (Note: chicken broth has salt but feel free to add a little more to taste if you like. I didn’t feel like it needed any.)
No mixer needed here – I literally used a fork to make this dish. I suppose if you wanted a true mashed potato, you could use a mixer but I’m half Irish and I love a good smashed potato dish. I intended to serve this warm but even room temperature, these potatoes were absolutely bomb at my Summer Vineyard Picnic. I hope you love them as much as I do!
Goat Cheese Smashed Potatoes
1 pound Yukon gold potatoes
