If you’ve never put Boursin cheese in your mashed potatoes you haven’t quite lived. These mashed potatoes are ultra creamy and bursting with flavour!
Boursin Cheese Mashed Potatoes
I know it was only last week I uploaded my Boursin Pasta, but I just couldn’t resist this 🤪 It was actually a follower on Instagram that suggested trying Boursin with mashed potatoes (thank you Joanne!) and my life changed on the spot. There’s no way I couldn’t!
Anywho, as you can imagine this recipe is fairly simple. But there are a few tips and tricks I suggest giving a go in order to take these potatoes to the next level.
The first thing I suggest doing right off the bat is boiling your potatoes in chicken stock. This will add a nice gentle background flavour to the spuds. The chicken flavour compliments the garlic and herbs in the Boursin insanely well. If you don’t have stock, water works just fine.
Process shots: add potatoes to pot (photo 1), pour in stock (photo 2), boil until knife tender (photo 3).
Making Boursin Mashed Potatoes
Once you’ve boiled the spuds just let them steam dry for a few mins, just so they don’t go sloppy when you mash them. The more they steam = the most moisture escapes = the less watery the mashed potatoes will be.
What can I add to Boursin Mashed Potatoes?
Alongside the potatoes and Boursin, I like butter and whole milk. You can add cream or half and half, but just go steady as the cheese already makes the potatoes quite rich.
Can I make these ahead of time?
These are best made fresh, but you can store in the fridge and reheat. I recommend bringing them to room temp then blitzing them in the microwave. Bringing them to room temp will help them reheat more evenly.
