Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 6 people

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes (peeled)
  • 6 Tablespoons butter (divided)
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup shredded Cabot Vermont Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • Minced fresh parsley (for garnish (optional))
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  • Cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes and place them in a large pot. Add enough water to cover the potatoes and add about 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 15-20 minutes, until the potatoes fall apart easily when pierced with a fork. Drain well.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add drained potatoes to a large mixing bowl along with the cream and 4 TBSP butter. Mash well with a potato masher until there are no longer any lumps (or press through a potato ricer).
  • Stir in the cheese until well combined. Season with salt & pepper, to taste.
  • Let cool slightly, then stir in the egg yolks.
  • At this point if the mixture is very thick you can add additional heavy cream, if needed.
  • Transfer the mashed potatoes to a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip. (You’ll need to work in batches.) Pipe the potatoes onto the parchment-lined baking sheets into swirls about 3 inches in diameter.
  • Gently brush with the remaining 2 TBSP butter, melted.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Serve immediately garnished with parsley, if desired.
