Usually not a big fan of goat cheese, BUT this recipe did the trick for me. From BH&G.

AI was a little disappointed with this recipe. I really thought it would be much better than it was. I think it does have potential though. The biggest issue we had was it was really dry. The top half of the potatoes cooked with no liquid at all and they ended up dried out which was not appealing. I really didn't think the bread crumb mixture added anything either, and since the potatoes were already dry made the dryness worse. If I make again I would increase the milk mixture to cover all the potatoes, not just the bottom half. I would likely skip the breadcrumb mixture as well.
