Stove Top

Ingredients

5
large yukon gold potatoes or 5 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
2
(14 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth
3 Tbsp
butter
2 1/2 c
shredded smoked gouda cheese
4 slice
bacon, fried until crisp (but not black)
2 Tbsp
finely chopped fresh sage

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the potatoes and enough broth to barely cover them in a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
2
Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer just until tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.
3
Drain the potatoes, reserving the cooking liquid.
4
Return the potatoes and 1 cup of the cooking liquid to the saucepan and, using a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon, mash until smooth.
5
Add the butter and gouda and stir until incorporated and melted; do not over mix.

If necessary, add more broth to attain the desired consistency but be careful not to make then too liquidy.
6
Stir in the bacon, sage and salt and pepper to taste.

Serve immediately.
