So I tried something new this year when it came to mashed potatoes. First off I used Yukon Gold potatoes (about 4 1/2lbs) and then I just peeled and boiled them like normal. Then I dumped them in the colander to drain them and then I let them just sit there for a few minutes while the excess water worked its way out. Then I dumped them into my KitchenAid Mixer and added about 1/2 cup of 2% milk and 2-3 ounces of Brie cheese. Then I put the spurs to it.
Now I have had the mashed potatoes with all the sour cream, creamed cheese and whole milk and these were better. While brie seems a bit decadent just remember that you are just adding a little bit versus recipes that call for both cream cheese and sour cream. I have also found that brie isn’t that expensive. Today I saw it for less that $5 a pound.
All said, they were delectable. Even my nephew who doesn’t really like cheese loved these potatoes!
