I made this a few days ago and it turned out terrific. I was sceptical of black olives, but this is a major goat cheese household ;-). Honestly, worked great. Didn't have the cream though, so just used a splash of milk and more potato water -- this was the first time I learned this trick and it works and keeps the fat down in the finished product. Keeper!

You just know when you taste a sensational dish, the flavours work really well together. I used half cream half milk (we cant buy half and half as such) and I had no fresh thyme so used the dry. Will be making this again.

I thought this turned out really tasty! I actually skipped the half and half and just used the potato water at the end to get it to the right consistency while mashing. Garnished with thinly sliced green onion, so good!

All you goat-cheese lovers out there must make this one. That ingredient alone makes this a keeper for me. Love olives too, but it would be fine without them if you need to leave out for picky kids. Made as directed, using fat-free half and half, and I did use more like a cup of the potato water. Delicious!

Incredible! Drained most of the water but mashed the potatoes in about a cup of the reserved water and used milk instead of cream. Oh, used Feta instead of goat cheese just because it was a better match for my main dish. Worked well! A hit!

This was so good we ate it instead of the boring chicken it was with! One of the best I have made from zaar. Reheated and tasted fine, but looked ugly. I used a grated crottin de chevre and it was perfect.
