A very decant mashed potato that is not for the diet conscious. Recommend using Klondik gold potatoes which are a small buttery flavored potato that requires no peeling. Zaar would not take Klondik gold potatoes. Can use yukon gold but will need to cut them up as they are larger than the Klondik's.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs yukon gold potatoes, Recommend Klondike gold potatoes
- 1⁄3 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon white pepper
- 3 ounces brie cheese, rind removed, cubed
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leave, chopped
- Boil potatoes until tender about 25 to 30 minutes.
- Drain and mash potatoes. Add cream, butter, salt, pepper, cubed brie and thyme. Blend until smooth.
What a decadent mashed potato recipe!!! I cheated and used leftover mashed potatoes (that already had the butter, cream and salt), and then added ground thyme (didn't have fresh), white pepper, brie cheese and also threw in some sliced scallion (leftover from breakfast). I heated it all up in the microwave and served it with roasted chicken thighs, gravy and corn, so so good!! They really didn't need any gravy, so flavorful without it. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Have made brie mashed potatoes with another receipt which is very close to this one. Have used red and yukon gold potatoes . . . Skin on is the only way to go. I reduce the heavy cream by about 20% and double the amount of brie, 8 oz for 2 / 2.5 lbs of potatoes. Mix about 70% of the brie when mashing the potatoes. Put mashed potatoes in a casserole pan and top with the remaining brie in 1/2" chunks then put in the oven at 275 broil to brown the top of the potatoes and brie. Top is a little crunchy but still creamy and moist on the inside.
Great way to serve potatoes! We liked the creamy texture of the Brie. I used dried thyme leaves and red potatoes. Made for CQ2015/LBOB
