  • 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


  • 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.


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