Vermont Cheddar Mashed Potatoes

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Potatoes

 Ingredients List

  • 3 pounds medium russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • ¾ pound Vermont aged white Cheddar, grated
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Small pinch cayenne
  • Pinch of grated nutmeg
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • ¾ cup heavy cream, heated
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten


1. Boil potatoes in well-salted water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well in a colander and place in the bowl of a stand mixer with a wire whisk attachment. Beat at medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes to allow steam to escape.

2. Turn off mixer and add cheese, baking powder, salt, pepper, cayenne and nutmeg. Beat again for a minute or so.

3. Add butter and cream, mixing slowly, then increase speed to medium and drizzle in beaten eggs. Stop and scrape down bowl with rubber spatula to make sure ingredients are incorporated evenly. Beat at medium-high speed until mixture is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Serve immediately in a heated bowl. Alternatively, transfer potatoes to a 2-quart baking dish, cover with foil and let stand at room temperature. Reheat for 30 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees, until piping hot. (If you want the top browned, remove foil halfway through baking. Otherwise give the potatoes a stir before serving.)
