  • 2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes peeled and cut into ~2-inch uniform pieces
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 (5.2 oz) pkg Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs Gournay cheese
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 pinch fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 Tbsp chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chopped chives


  • Put the potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a simmer on high heat.
  • Once potatoes are at a simmer, reduce heat to medium-high and simmer 10-15 minutes until just fork tender. Drain well.
  • While potatoes are cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook gently for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Pass the potatoes through a potato ricer back into the pot. Alternatively, put the potatoes back in the pot and mash with a potato masher.
  • To the potatoes, add the garlic-butter mixture, cream, milk, Boursin, salt, and pepper, and stir (allow time for the Boursin to melt in between stirs). Taste for seasoning.
  • If desired, transfer to a bake dish or small casserole.
  • Keep warm until ready to serve, or potatoes can be allowed to cool and reheated (either way, keep covered with foil).
  • Top with the herbs when ready to serve.
