I didn’t peel the potatoes I used for this recipe, but you can if you prefer. We like the rustic texture that the skins provide to the finished dish.
Just give them a good scrub beforehand to remove any dirt.
After the potatoes are cooked, drain the water.
Using the back of a wooden spoon or potato masher, mash the potatoes until slightly mashed up but still a little chunky.
Stir in the Boursin cheese, butter, salt and heavy cream until well combined and desired consistency is reached.
Optional: serve with chopped chives or scallion greens on top as a garnish.
