Champagne Mashed Potatoes


  • 3 lbs. Wisconsin potatoes washed, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups dry champagne
  • 1 Tbsp. pink sea salt (or more to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • 4 oz. creamy Havarti cheese cut into small squares
  • 1 Tbsp. thyme leaves finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. tarragon leaves finely chopped
  • thyme leaves additional, for garnish


  • Place potatoes in a large stockpot with enough cold water to cover.
  • Bring stockpot to a boil and allow potatoes to cook for about 20 minutes until very tender and able to be pierced easily with a fork.
  • Drain water from potatoes and return to stockpot.
  • While the potatoes are still hot, add the champagne, heavy cream, salt and butter.
  • Using an immersion blender, mash and blend the potatoes until smooth.
  • With a large spoon, stir in the diced Havarti cheese into the mashed potatoes until melted, then mix in the tarragon and thyme.
  • At this point, if you feel your potatoes seem a little too dry, you can add another tablespoon of butter and a splash more of champagne.
  • Place the mashed potatoes into a serving bowl, sprinkle with a bit of pink sea salt and some chopped thyme and serve immediately
