If we could shrink ourselves, crawl into a bowl of these ultra-rich potatoes and take a nap, you better believe we would. This side dish is the most comfortable of comfort foods. Brie cheese gets carefully tucked into warm pillows of mashed Yukon gold potatoes, creating luscious pockets of warm, melty cheese. Who knew potatoes could be this luxurious? MORE+ LESS-

  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan, place potatoes and enough salted water to cover potatoes. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer 20 to 30 minutes or until tender; drain.
  • 2
    Return to pan. Shake pan gently over low heat to dry potatoes.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat milk, butter, salt, pepper and garlic over medium-low heat 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until garlic is tender. Pour milk mixture over potatoes. Add half of the cheese; mash with potato masher until fluffy.
  • 4
    Fold remaining cheese into mashed potatoes, just enough to incorporate. There should still be visible pockets of cheese. Serve hot.

Expert Tips

  • Cooking Vegetarian and Gluten Free? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is vegetarian and gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Yukon gold potatoes are a medium-starch potato. That means they’re a good compromise between dry, fluffy russet potatoes and moist, waxy varieties like red potatoes. Yukons are the perfect choice for these ultra-creamy, garlicky mashed potatoes.
  • These mashed potatoes have cheesy, gooey pockets of Brie cheese throughout. And while we love cheese, we chose a mild Brie so as to not completely overpower the potatoes.
  • Drying the potatoes in the pan after they have been cooked in the water allows them to soak up more milk and melted butter without becoming too loose.
