Steakhouse Smoked Gouda Mashed Potatoes
  • 2 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 1 inch)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • ½ stick butter
  • ¾ cup half and half
  • ½ cup smoked gouda, grated
  • chives, thinly sliced
  • salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  1. Put potatoes, garlic, and a big pinch of kosher salt into a pan. Cover with water, bring to a boil, and simmer until fork tender.
  2. Warm the butter and half and half in a small sauce pan.
  3. Drain the potatoes and return pan back to stove.
  4. Add the warmed liquid a little at a time until you are happy with the consistency.
  5. Mash with a potato masher (see link below) or with a spoon. This gives you more control over the texture. If you use a blender, it’s easy to over-whip them and turn the potatoes into glue.
  6. Stir in grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in ¾ of your chives.
  7. To serve, top with the rest of your chives.
