Ingredients

  • 4 large Idaho Russet Potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste

Instructions

  • Wash and peel the potatoes, then cut them into ~3/4 inch cubes. Place chopped potatoes in a large pot. Add water to cover potatoes, plus 1 extra inch on top. Cover pot with a lid, and heat on high until boiling. Remove lid, turn down heat to medium low, and cook an additional ~5 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender. Cover most of the pot with the lid, and very carefully pour out excess water into a sink. Let potatoes sit in pot, uncovered for 5 minutes to let any additional water evaporate.
  • While potatoes are cooking, finely chop the fresh rosemary, and set aside until ready to use.
  • After cooked potatoes have rested for 5 minutes, add the butter, olive oil, goat cheese, and milk to the pot. Mash, and mix ingredients together with a potato masher, or hand mixer until desired consistency is achieved. Stir in rosemary and salt to combine well. Taste, and add additional seasoning if desired before serving.

Notes

Low FODMAP Version: Substitute whole milk with lactose free whole milk.
