Creamy mashed potatoes mixed with smoked Gouda and topped with bacon and chives make for the perfect side dish. Smoked Gouda, a hard cheese originating from the Netherlands, adds a creamy buttery texture to the potatoes with just a hint of smokiness.

Key Ingredients in This Recipe

  • Potatoes – In this recipe I use Russet potatoes, also known as Idaho potatoes. They’re large, starchy, oblong potatoes known for being the ideal baking potato. When they’re cooked they become soft and light.
  • Smoked Gouda – Smoked Gouda cheese is a semi-soft cow’s milk cheese from the Netherlands. It is creamy in texture with a nuttier, smokey flavor then regular Gouda cheese.

How to Make Smoked Gouda Mashed Potatoes

  1. Boil the potatoes. Rinse and peel the potatoes then cut into 1½” chunks. In a large pot over medium-high heat, bring water to a rolling boil. Cook the potatoes until they are tender, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Drain the potatoes completely.
  2. Mash the potatoes. Add a few potatoes at a time to a free standing mixer or a large bowl if using a handheld mixer. Depending on the size of the mixer the mashing may have to be done in batches.
  3. Add cheese and butter to potatoes. After potatoes are mashed, beat in the cream cheese and butter. Add the cheese and continue to beat until the cheese has melted into the potatoes and is completely combined. Season to taste with salt.
  4. Mix to combine.Continue to mix the potatoes on medium speed until all ingredients are combined and the mashed potatoes are creamy not chunky.
  5. Serve. Serve hot in a large serving bowl topped with bacon and chives.
