Creamy Garlic and Herb Mashed Potatoes

by Laura

I love potatoes. I love them cooked any way possible.  However, this is my new favorite way to eat them at the moment.  When I made the slow cooked brown sugar and maple pork roast I shared yesterday, I was looking for something to accompany the dish.  I was thinking garlic mashed potatoes, but did have the time to roast the garlic.  Now, I happen to have some Boursin spreadable garlic and herb cheese in my fridge. I thought it would be the perfect addition to some mashed potatoes and I was right. The result is this creation of Creamy Garlic and Herb Mashed Potatoes.

I mean how can you really loose by adding cheese to potatoes! The herb and garlic was just what I was looking for.  Top each serving with a little pat of butter and allow it to melt.  Pure potato perfection!

You don’t have to have Boursin cheese, any other spreadable garlic and herb cheese like Alouette  or Rondele will do. Usually, I find these cheeses over in the deli section of the Grocery store. I got a 2 pack of the Boursin cheese from Sam’s Club. I find that most stores carry one of the before mentioned brands.

Trust me, you will love these Creamy Garlic and Herb Mashed Potatoes.
