  • 6 
Yukon Gold potatoes, 
peeled and quartered
  • 3 tbsp 
organic unsalted butter (TRY: Horizon Organic Unsalted Butter)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp full-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp 
each sea salt and ground 
black pepper (TRY: Simply Organic Ground Black Pepper)
  • 1 cup 
cooked lobster chunks 
(½-inch chunks; tail and claw 
meat preferably)
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives


  1. To a large pot, add potatoes and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer until potatoes are very tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter on medium. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly until fragrant, about 45 seconds. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. Drain potatoes, reserving 1 cup cooking water. Return potatoes to pot and mash with a potato masher until smooth, adding back reserved cup of cooking liquid while mashing. Add garlic-butter mixture, milk, cream cheese, salt and pepper and continue to mash until fully incorporated. Fold in lobster, cheddar and chives.
