  • potato masher OR hand mixer


  • 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes cut in approx. 1 - 1 1/2" cubes
  • salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • ¾ cup whole milk or half and half
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups smoked Gouda cheese grated
  • Optional: extra butter or fresh chopped parsley for garnish


  • Peel and cube the potatoes then add to a large pot with enough cold water to cover them.
  • Cover and bring to a boil then add about 1 tablespoon of salt then reduce the heat to medium low and cook 12-15 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.
  • Drain the potatoes in a colander then return them to the pot over very low heat for 1 minute to let any residual water evaporate. This prevents the potatoes from being gummy!
  • Rough mash the potatoes with a potato masher or hand mixer then make a well in the center of the potatoes. Add the butter and milk then continue mashing until smooth. Stir in the cheese then taste and adjust salt as needed.
  • Optional garnishes: pat of butter and/or fresh chopped parsley.
