Smoked Gouda Mashed Potatoes

by Ally Harding, 5:00 AM
Today I'm linking up with Caitlin over at Home Sweet Ruby for a Thanksgiving Recipe Link-up!

Theo and I are big mashed potato people. I never eat rice and really don't like it so mashed potatoes are my thing. We made these Smoked Gouda Mashed Potatoes for Thanksgiving a few years ago at his brother's house and have made them pretty much every year since. Sometimes we make them if we just want mashed potatoes. They're.that.good. There's a lot of recipes we could have gone with but Emeril's looked like the best and easiest. Plus it's Emeril's recipe so you know it's good. If you're looking for a crowd-pleaser for Thanksgiving this is it my friends.

{Smoked Gouda Mashed Potatoes}


3 pounds of Idaho potatoes, peeled and cubed
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup heavy cream, plus more if needed
3/4 pound of shredded smoked Gouda cheese
Salt and white pepper


Place potatoes and 1 teaspoon of salt in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat until fork tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain potatoes from the water. 

Return the potatoes to the saucepan and add the butter, cream, and cheese. Mash the potatoes, stirring to incorporate the seasonings. Season with salt and white pepper and serve warm.
