Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes with garlic take a classic comfort food dish to a new level! Made with tangy goat cheese, sour cream, and Parmesan cheese, these potatoes are perfectly creamy and flavorful every time.
Cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes and place them in a large pot with the garlic, chicken broth and salt. Add enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 10 to 12 minutes, until the potatoes fall apart easily when pierced with a fork.
As soon as the potatoes are tender, drain them in a colander.
Place hot potatoes and garlic in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix until smooth, about 1 minute. (You can also use a hand masher or a hand mixer.)
While still hot, slowly add in the milk, butter, goat cheese, sour cream and black pepper.
Mix until smooth and milk is absorbed. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.
Add potatoes to a 9x12” baking dish. Sprinkle on the parmesan and bake 30-40 minutes, until golden.
Serve warm topped with chives, if desired.
Place the potatoes in the water and then bring it to a boil. This ensures even cooking.
Cook the potatoes until very tender for a creamy, lump-free texture.
