Gouda Mashed Potatoes
With Easter just a few weeks away, I have been thinking about what to serve as a side dish this year. It’s just my husband and me for Easter dinner so I want to focus on things that we really love.
These gouda potatoes are definitely something that’s high on my list of favorite recipes. And, it’s easy to customize how much you make based on how many potatoes you use.
What do I need to make this recipe?
This is really fairly simple to make. All you need is a large pot to boil the potatoes and a potato masher. If you like the potatoes very smooth and creamy, you can use an electric mixer to get that super smooth consistency.
This one works really well to make the potatoes nice and creamy.
What kind of potatoes work best for mashed potatoes?
When it comes to these Gouda Mashed Potatoes, you can really use any type of potato. But, experts say that potatoes like Russets or Yukon Golds really give you the fluffiest potatoes due to their starch content.
Russet potatoes were used in this recipe. They really do add a great flavor to the dish. But, if you have another type of potato on hand, you can definitely use those instead.
Can I make garlic gouda mashed potatoes?
You definitely can add garlic to this recipe. Just add a well-mashed clove to the potatoes when you are mashing them. Make sure that it is really mashed well so you don’t end up with pieces of garlic in your potatoes.
How do I make a gouda mashed potato casserole?
All you need to do is to put the mashed potatoes in a baking dish and add a few dots of butter to the top. Then, bake it at 350F until the top gets golden brown.
Check it regularly as it will depend on how large of a baking dish you use and how many potatoes you add. Baked gouda mashed potatoes go wonderfully well with your Easter ham since you are using the oven anyway.
What is smoked gouda?
Not all gouda cheese is smoked. You can use the plain gouda cheese if you like or the smoked variety.
Gouda cheese is a hard cheese with an edible, brown rind and a creamy center. It is similar to Edam.
Can I use light cream?
Yes, this is a rich and creamy recipe for Gouda Mashed Potatoes so it uses heavy cream and butter. If you are concerned about the calorie count, you can substitute light cream if you prefer.
I wouldn’t try it with just milk because it might be too thin. If you do substitute regularly milk, be sure to use a bit less of it in your recipe just in case.
Is this like the gouda mashed potatoes by Emeril?
Emeril uses Idaho potatoes in his recipe so it’s a little bit different. He also uses a little bit more butter. Other than that, this recipe is quite similar.
What should I serve with gouda mashed potatoes?
- 3 to 4 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- ½ cup (1 stick) butter, sliced
- ¾ cup heavy cream
- 8 ounces smoked gouda cheese, shredded
- Place potatoes into a stockpot and cover with water. Add salt if desired.
- Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Drain well.
- Return the potatoes to the pot and add the remaining ingredients. Beat or mash until creamy.
