The Science Behind Great Mashed Potatoes




These potatoes are so light and fluffy, you better make extra – since everyone will want seconds!




3 Tbsp butter or margarine
3 lbs Russet potatoes, peeled & boiled
3 egg yolks
1 1/4 cup milk or milk alternative
1 1/2 cup Gruyere or Jarlsburg cheese, grated
Salt to taste

Mash potatoes, then add butter. Cool slightly then mix in yolks, milk and 1 1/4 cups of the cheese. Salt to taste.

Spread into buttered baking dish, and top with remaining cheese (don’t pile potatoes too close to dish edges, as it will rise a few inches as it bakes), and bake at 400°F for 30 minutes.

Note: Use a high sided casserole dish – not a rectangular baking dish, or the potatoes will be more crunchy then fluffy.
