Boursin Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Introducing your new favorite mashed potato recipe! I wish I could describe how silky smooth and delicious these Boursin mashed potatoes are. What exactly is Boursin cheese? Created by François Boursin, a cheesemaker from Normandy, Boursin cheese is a flavored cheese, and the creamy texture comes from cow’s milk. It comes in many flavors and this incredible cheese can enhance so many delicious recipes. For example, you will love my Boursin chicken recipe! I used Boursin garlic & fine herbs Gournay cheese in these potatoes and it deserves a chef’s kiss! You will love the added garlic and herbs bursting in every bite!

Mashed potatoes are my go-to side dish to serve to my family! They’re easy to make and everyone loves them. I have more mashed potato recipes you have to try! These crockpot potatoes are great because you can make them ahead of time. You’ll also love these garlic potatoes, and my Dad’s famous potatoes are a MUST!

Tips and Variations

Here are some tips for making perfect Boursin mashed potatoes! I know you’re going to love them as much as my family does. The Boursin cheese takes the flavor and texture to the next level!

  • Yukon Gold Potatoes: Yukon gold potatoes are my absolute favorite potato to mash. They are buttery and creamy and perfect! Feel free to use red or russet potatoes, but you’re missing out if you don’t use Yukon gold, also known as yellow potatoes.
  • Peeling Potatoes: Peeling potatoes for mashed potatoes is a preference. You can peel half of them, all of them, or leave all the skins on. I like to leave some of the skin on because the skin packs in so many nutrients! I also love the added texture. The skin easily mashes in and you hardly even notice it. It’s great because it cuts down on prep time even more!
  • Extra Mix-Ins: Want to jazz things up a bit? Add in some diced green onions or chives. Another delicious mix-in would be chopped crispy bacon!
  • Double the Recipe: These Boursin mashed potatoes are undeniably a favorite at our house! I promise you will want to double the recipe so you have leftovers.

Storing Leftovers

These leftover boursin mashed potatoes are undoubtedly the best! The Boursin cheese keeps the potatoes nice and creamy. I’m such a potato-lover, finding leftover mashed potatoes in the fridge is one of my favorite things!

  • In the Refrigerator: Store leftover potatoes in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
  • To Reheat: When you are ready to eat your leftovers, take them out and heat them up in the microwave! Cook them on high for about 1 minute or until warmed through.
