AWESOME POTATOES!! I made these with boursin-pepper spreadable cheese and a shallot rather than an onion. I did add a little garlic salt with the pepper and salt. They pepper cheese gave it a strong pepper flavor and the fresh herbs were the perfect addition! Will be making these again!! Made for Everyday Holiday.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In pot combine potatoes with salted water to cover. Bring to boil. Cook until tender, 12 minutes. Drain; return to pot.
  2. Meanwhile, in separate pot over medium-low heat, combine 1 cup broth, onion, cheese, and cream cheese; cook, stirring, until cheese melts and mixture begins to simmer. Stir into potatoes and mash, stirring in more broth if desired for creamier texture.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients. Serve topped with butter, if desired.
