    rbrynsaas's Note:

    An easy side dish with great flavor. I love the goat cheese in this! If you want to make these ahead, chill them and reheat before serving, adding some extra liquid. Stir in the chives right before serving.

      While trying to thin out my magazinie recipe clipping collection I ran across this one and decided to make it tonight since I had goat heese in the house. It was just ok for me. I love goat cheese and potatoes but it felt like it was missing something else to give it some oomph. It certainly wasn't bad but just didn't knock my socks off enough for me to keep the recipe. Regarding prep, its simple and quick to make, would be a great after work side dish.

      I will start off by saying that I am not a big fan of potatoes but occassionally make them to please my boyfriend who is a potato-holic. These were wonderful! I followed Becky's advice and left some potatoes with skin on and used peppercorn goat cheese and skipped the additional pepper. When I was done these looked restaurant-quality and tested even better. I actually liked them and will be making them again. Thanks for posting!

      ***MADE FOR PAC SPRING 2009*** AWESOME!! Need I say more?!? My daughter-in-law introduced me to goat cheese about a month ago, and I'm hooked. I used red skin potatoes in this, and peeled some, and left some with skins on. I love the texture skins give mashed potatoes. The goat cheese in here makes this dish so creamy. I did bump up the black pepper only because I like it a bit more kicked up. Thanks rbrynsaas for a great recipe.
