Recipe Tips

For super smooth potatoes, combine in a food processer. Be sure to process only until just smooth, over-processing will turn potatoes gummy.
Smoky cheeses like gouda and smoked cheddar go great with this recipe, along with bacon, truffle oil, and savory gravies.
When boiling potatoes, add a little oil to the surface of the water to prevent foaming.
