Feta and Herb Mashed Potatoes

These creamy and fresh potatoes will add new depth to any meal. Some would think that sour cream was added in the potatoes thanks to the tanginess of the feta cheese.

  • 6 medium white potatoes peeled
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/4 cup each fresh parsley dill, and sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • *3 tbsp milk if needed


  • Peel, chop, and rinse potatoes. Fill water to just above the potatoes and add 1 tbsp salt. Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft enough to fall apart when a knife is inserted in them.
  • Drain potatoes, and add 1/4 cup butter to the pot the potatoes were boiling in. Add the potatoes back to the pot then add fresh parsley, dill, and green onions followed by feta cheese. Place a lid on top of the potatoes and let them sit for 5 minutes.
  • Add black pepper to the potatoes and mash using a hand-mixer. Add milk if needed (one tablespoon at a time or until moist). Top with more fresh herbs and butter and serve immediately.


*Always chop your potatoes evenly so that they cook evenly.
*I've tested these potatoes multiple times and have found that yukon potatoes work best and 95% of the time I did not need to add any liquid to my potatoes.
