Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Kale and Boursin Cheese - A Family Feast

Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Kale and Boursin Cheese

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 2 pounds peeled sweet potato (about 2 large potatoes), cut into one inch cubes
  • 8 ounces peeled yellow potato such as Yukon Gold (about 1 medium potato), cut into one inch cubes
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 4 cups chopped kale leaves removed from stems (about 8 ounces in weight)
  • 2 5.2-ounce packages of Boursin cheese – Garlic and Herbs flavor (or make our homemade version)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and place in sweet and yellow potatoes. Boil uncovered until soft, about 10 minutes. Drain potatoes in a colander and leave in colander while you prepare the rest of the dish.
  2. Using the same pot that you used to cook the potatoes, pour in milk and cream, and add chopped kale leaves and Boursin cheese. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook 5-6 minutes covered or until kale has wilted and is slightly tender. Add salt and pepper, stir and remove from heat.
  3. Add the potatoes to the kale mixture and mash with a potato masher, adding more milk if needed for proper consistency. Taste and season again with more salt and pepper if needed.
