i love the sound of adding goat cheese to mashed potatoes! i recently started adding cream cheese and i love it, so i bet goat cheese would add a similar rich, creaminess (:
Thanks Heather! ♡ Ooo cream cheese would be so good with mashed potatoes! It would definitely add a similar tangy flavor and creaminess as goat cheese!

Hi Cathleen! Haha aww thanks so much!! ♥ Hope you have a great week! 🙂
I love the idea of adding goat cheese to mashed potatoes!! I am sure it takes them to another level of creaminess!! Thanks for the tip on soaking them in cold salt water first..I am going to try this next time to see the difference :).
Hi Deepika! ♥ Thanks!! Yes, goat cheese definitely adds a lot of flavor and creaminess to the recipe! And you’re welcome – it’s important to start the potatoes in cold water first and then gradually increase the heat so that they cook properly. 🙂
