Gruyere, Garlic, and Gouda Mashed Potatoes
Gruyere, Garlic, and Gouda Mashed Potatoes with French fine herbs, butter, and cream are cheesy mashed potatoes to complement your main dish.
2 ½ lbs Yukon gold potatoes peeled and quartered 2 Tbsp unsalted butter 2 clove garlic chopped ¼ cup heavy cream ½ cup milk 1 (5.3 oz) pkg Gruyere cheese, shredded and divided 1 (5.3 oz) pkg Gouda cheese, shredded and divided ½ tsp kosher salt 2 pinches fresh cracked pepper 2 Tbsp minced fresh flat-leaf parsley divided 2 Tbsp minced fresh chives divided 1 Tbsp minced fresh tarragon leaves divided
Cook the potatoes Put the peeled and quartered potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water. Place pot on a stove burner, turn to high heat, and bring to a simmer (this takes 5-6 minutes). Reduce heat to medium-high and simmer until potatoes are just fork tender (10-15 minutes). During this time, adjust heat as needed to keep at a simmer and not a violent rolling boil. While potatoes are cooking: in a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add the garlic and cook gently for 1 minute to infuse the butter and lightly cook the garlic. Remove from the heat and set aside. Assemble the mashed potatoes Drain potatoes well. If using a potato ricer, pass the potatoes through the ricer back into the empty pot. If not using a ricer, put drained potatoes back in the pot and mash. Add the butter-garlic mixture, cream, milk, 3/4s each of the Gruyere and Gouda cheeses, salt, pepper, 1 Tablespoon each parsley and chives, and 1/2 Tablespoon tarragon. Stir together. Add a splash or two more milk if necessary to the desired consistency of creamy mashed potatoes. Bake and serve Transfer mashed potatoes to a 2-qt casserole or bake dish. Top with the remaining Gruyere and Gouda. Bake, uncovered at 350°F for 20 minutes until heated through with an audible little sizzle. Top with remaining herbs and serve.
