With a roast beef dinner one of the first sides that I think about is almost always potatoes. Potatoes are so versatile and you can do so many things with them but my favorite way to serve them is mashed. There is just something that is so addictively good about simple creamy and buttery mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes never get boring and they are like a open palate just waiting to have flavours added to them. A while ago I had tried some white cheddar and garlic mashed potatoes and I really liked how the cheese worked in the mashed potatoes and this time I was thinking about using some goat cheese.
Mashed potatoes are pretty easy to make; you simply boil the potatoes until they are nice and tender and then you mash them. One good thing about mashed potatoes is that they are done on the stove top so you don’t have to worry about trying to fit the potatoes in the oven with the roast. The goat cheese mashed potatoes turned out great! They were so nice and creamy and the goat cheese added an amazing tanginess that kept me coming back for more. I served the goat cheese mashed potatoes smothered in the coffee gravy made with the drippings from the roast beef and they went really well together!

Kevin, YUM! I have blue cheese mashed potatoes on my menu for next week but I may have to consider swapping them for these – they sound divine!

Goat cheese makes everything taste better!!!
Oh lovely! I usually add cheese to mashed potatoes, but the goat cheese must give it a tasty twist.
Holy cow! These mashed potatoes with goat cheese and coffee gravy look delicious!
Please share the recipe for coffee gravy!!! Sounds amazing!
I love goat cheese in cauliflower purees so I bet it is fantastic in potatoes as well.
Wow that looks sooooo good. I would have never thought to mix goat cheese into my mashed potatoes nor coffee with my gravy. Definitely a must try.

Such a great idea for the cold weather we've started getting. Roast beef dinners are a regular occurrence for my family now that winter has hit.
Goat cheese mashed potatoes, sounds delicious. A great way to put a smile on my wifes face after she drives home in the snow, yes… I said it. Sorry…
Is there a recipe for the coffee gravy anywhere?
Lea Ann says

Thanks Kevin!!! Feel free to remove my comment now that you've removed the disgusting hate comment, as it's kind of silly now!
Love your blog, I'll be watching for more yummy recipes!
this looks awesome! think you could use feta for the cheese?
bravo, kevin! what a gorgeous recipe
I could eat that right now 🙂 It sounds like a lovely tasty dish 🙂
I think I just drooled on the Shift key.
I made this tonight for dinner next to Veal Marsala and it was absolutely divine! I forgot the garlic in the potatoes though (whooops) but it was still fantastical!! 🙂 Thanks
Excellent spin on plain ol' mashed potatoes. I would love to pair this with some prime rib.
Kevin, I've been reading you for a while now and I'm always so impressed with your dishes. Seriously, goat cheese mashed potatoes? Yum! I'm from Texas, and coffee gravy has a long tradition there, we call it Red Eye gravy, it's a cowboy thing. Excellent job!
I'm not a big sweets eater… but I can eat mountains of mashed potatoes and gravy. This looks AMAZING!!!
