We love potatoes so much in the south that we occasionally cook Idaho and Sweet potatoes together. That’s the case in this recipe.

 

2 large Idaho potatoes, peeled and diced

8 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, shredded

1 cup cream, divided

8 TBSP butter, divided

2 tsp salt, divided

2 large sweet potatoes

1 tsp smoked paprika

 

Place Idaho potatoes in a large sauce pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil; add 2 TBSP salt. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and return to pan. Add Gouda cheese, 1/2 cup cream, 4 TBSP butter, and 1 tsp salt. Using a handheld potato masher, mash potatoes. If too thick add more cream 1 TBSP at a time.

Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork; place on paper towels in a microwave oven. Microwave on high for 8 minutes, or until tender, rearranging potatoes after 4 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Peel potatoes and mash. Add remaining cream, 4 TBSP butter, 1 tsp salt, and smoked paprika, stir until blended. In a 8 x 8 baking dish, put sweet potatoes on one side and the white potatoes on the other side. Swirl with a spoon, but do not mix completely together.

 

Serves 4
