READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by rbrynsaas

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.
