When it comes to mashed potatoes with a twist, it doesn’t get much better than our dreamy, Creamy Lobster Mashed Potatoes. The base is a satiating foundation of fluffy Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, prepared with the usual ingredients and fixings. You won’t be surprised to see butter, garlic, whole milk, full-fat cream cheese, cheddar cheese and chives in our ingredients list.

But here’s where it gets creative. We opted to make this comforting, warming dish a staple regardless of season with the addition of summery, buttery lobster. These meaty bites, chopped into chunks and folded into the mash, add another layer of indulgence to an already-beloved dish.

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

  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.
