Camembert Mashed Potatoes

The buttery taste and creamy texture of Camembert cheese glorifies these potatoes. Camembert is similar in flavor and texture to Brie, which makes a fine substitute. The rind is easiest to remove if the cheese is well chilled.

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 (8-ounce) rounds Camembert cheese
  • 11 cups cubed peeled Yukon gold potato (about 4 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Cut cheese into 6 wedges. Carefully remove rind from cheese; discard rind. Chop cheese; let stand at room temperature while potato cooks.

Place potato in a large Dutch oven; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 12 minutes or until tender. Drain in a colander; return potato to pan. Add cheese, milk, salt, and 3/4 teaspoon pepper; mash with a potato masher until smooth. Garnish with chives and additional pepper, if desired.
