This easy 5-ingredient recipe upgrades everyone’s favorite holiday side dish with the addition of Brie.
3 lbs russet or Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
1 tbsp salt
8 oz Brie
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, sliced
1/2 cup half & half
To a large pot, add the potatoes, salt, and enough cold water to cover by 2 inches. Partially cover and heat to a boil on high. Reduce heat and simmer 15 min., until very tender.
Meanwhile, cut the rind from the Brie and cut brie into small chunks. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the butter and half & half. Cover with vented plastic and microwave 2–3 min., until butter melts.
Drain the potatoes well and return to pot. Let stand 1 min. Add melted butter mixture. With masher, mash potatoes until smooth. Stir in Brie until Brie melts. Season with salt to taste. Transfer to serving bowl and garnish with pepper, if desired.
