I only needed a couple of servings so used a couple of medium potatoes and then estimated the rest of the ingredients. Love the smoked gouda, have never used it in mashed potatoes and what fun to find a way to use the fresh sage that has survived our horrid summer. Terrific way to dress up a plain roasted chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  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. Add the butter and gouda and stir until incorporated and melted; do not overmix.
  5. If necessary, add more broth to attain the desired consistency.
  6. Stir in the bacon, sage and salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve immediately.
