large yukon gold potatoes or 5 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
(14 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth
3 Tbsp
2 1/2 c
shredded smoked gouda cheese

bacon, fried until crisp (but not black)
2 Tbsp
finely chopped fresh sage

How to Make Bacon and Sage Mashed Potatoes


  • 1Place the potatoes and enough broth to barely cover them in a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • 2Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer just until tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • 3Drain the potatoes, reserving the cooking liquid.
  • 4Return 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.
  • 5Add 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.
  • 6Stir in the bacon, sage and salt and pepper to taste.

    Serve immediately.
