Ready In:
1 9X13 casserole


  • 6 medium potatoes, coarsely diced (if using organic no need to peel them)
  • 3 tablespoons goat cheese (cream cheese)
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 18 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 18 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
  • 18 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 12 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (divided)
  • 12 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (divided)
  • 3 scallions, sliced (use white and green parts)


  • Place potato cubes in a pot with water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 15 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain.
  • Return potatoes to the pot and add cream cheese and milk. Mash with a masher until rather creamy. Season with garlic, nutmeg and salt to taste.
  • Now add in HALF of the mozzarella and HALF of the cheddar cheese (meaning 1/4 cup of each). Mash a little more.
  • Add in scallions, mix well.
  • Pour mashed taters into a 9X13 baking dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 20-25 minutes or until nicely browned on top. If you like the top very brown, you can put the dish on the top rack for the last 5 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

    I love goat cheese and so even though I halved the recipe I kept the original amount of goat cheese. Yes this is a denser mashed potato than I usually make but still very good. I used the leftovers to make fried potato patties the next day, those were good too!

    Followed the recipe using Chèvre. After taste-testing I added a small amount of milk and another 1/2 tsp of garlic powder. Since we like our cheese ooey-gooey I did not let the tops brown but did add a sprinkling of of green onions. I might do this again (this time with Neufchâtel) but will make my regular mashed and continue on from there as we all found the texture too heavy. Made four individual casseroles for RS#51.

    These were good - great concept but I feel like it just needed a bit more of everything. I ended up doubling the goat cheese, tripled the spices and had to add a lot of extra salt and pepper. Thanks for the posting!

    Scaled this back for 3 of us and used a small square casserole dish to bake it is and used the goats cheese and we all thoroughly enjoyed. For the cheese I used pregrated pizza mix (mozzarella, cheddar and parmesan. Thank you Lalaloula for a great mashed potato recipe, made for ZAAR Stars under the 24 hour rule.

    These are TDF!! I also halved the recipe, however we loved these so much we must have eaten much more than TeresaS because I'm guessing we got 3 servings. :lol: I added a little more milk and upped the nutmeg a little based on Teresa's review. I love goat cheese and they really took these potatoes over the edge. Thanks Loula for a delicious side. I too am adding this recipe to my Best of 2010 cookbook. Made for Went To The Market Tag.
