  • Author: Erin K. Browne
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


These mashed potatoes are super creamy, deliciously buttery, and flavored with Boursin garlic & herbs Gournay cheese. This will be your go-to mashed potatoes recipe!


  • 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled, rinsed, and cut into large chunks
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 (5.2 ounce) block Boursin Garlic & Fine Herb cheese
  • 1 cup whole milk, warmed
  • Salt, for boiling water and for seasoning potatoes.


  1. Set Boursin on counter to take the chill out while potatoes are being prepared. In a large pot, add potatoes and add enough water to cover the potatoes by 1 inch.
  2. Add about 1 tablespoon salt to water. Set over medium-high heat and bring to a low boil. Boil for 20-25 minutes or just until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
  3. Drain potatoes through a colander and return to pot. Add Boursin, butter, warm milk, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Use a potato masher to mash potatoes until desired consistency is reached. Taste and adjust salt as needed.
