"This is my husband's favorite Mashed Potatoes recipe. It's one of the more popular side dishes at Cheesecake Factory (which is where I got the recipe), and it's always served as a side dish when we order our favorite main dish of Chicken Costoletta (breaded chicken cutlets served with a creamy lemon sauce). The potatoes are so flavorful and moist though, so you won't need to smother them in gravy. The skins are left on the potatoes, so it adds an appealing splash or color to the dish. But the smoked Gouda adds a wonderful creaminess to the dish, and the horseradish cream adds a zesty tone that will liven up your taste buds. But the horseradish also adds a bit of a "kick" to the potatoes, so you might want to go light on the horseradish (or opt for a mild jar) if you prefer less "heat" in your potatoes. I also will sometimes toss in 1 to 2 cloves garlic (finely minced), but garlic isn't included in the original recipe, so I didn't include it as an ingredient."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place potato chunks and salt in a large stockpot and cover completely with water.

Step 2

Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes until very tender when pierced with fork. (It usually takes about 10 minutes for me, but it can be a bit longer, depending on the size of the potato chunks.) Drain and return hot potatoes to the stockpot. Cover pot to keep potatoes warm.

Step 3

In a medium saucepan, heat the butter and milk over medium heat until butter is melted. Pour the hot milk mixture into the (still hot) potatoes. Stir in the Gouda and horseradish for just a few seconds.

Step 4

Using a potato masher, smash the potatoes until most of it is creamy, but let some small chunks of potatoes remain throughout. Season with salt and pepper as desired. Then sprinkle the chopped green onion on top. Serve immediately while still hot.


No special items needed.

Very good potatoes! The only change I made was using some chives instead of the green onions and used skim milk for the milk. The horseradish we used was mild which was perfect for us. Thanks for sharing!
