Cheesy Sweet Potato Pomme Purée

Why Cheesy Sweet Potato Pomme Purée?

I have been a big fan of both French-styled Pomme Purée for its silky, creamy texture and its cheesy cousin Pommes Aligot (that’s just the French being fancy by adding cheese to potatoes). My version ends up somewhere in the middle land of both styles with considerably less cheese than the recent Aligot version. And unlike the traditional Pommes aligot, I forego the traditional Tomme d’Auvergne and fresh mozzarella cheeses. Instead, I am using mild-medium sharp goat cheese and luxuriously sharp cave-aged Gruyère cheese mainly because these cheeses are relatively easy to obtain and France is so far away from Michigan. The goat cheese adds a rustic buoyancy which speaks ever so seductively to my midwestern heart, and the cave-aged Gruyère is just me being all fancy, but in this case, it’s justified because Gruyère is just bae. All in all, this is a delicious side for a beautifully prepared weekend date night with the Mrs. Wait, no not your Mrs., but my Mrs. but feel free to pamper your Mrs. or Mr. too!

How to make Cheesy Sweet Potato Pomme Purée

Ingredients for Cheesy Sweet Potato Pomme Purée

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cut into 1″ slices then halved
  • 2 sticks high-quality butter, heated into browned butter (Land O’ Lakes European Style Butter)
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup medium sharp goat cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup cave-aged Gruyère cheese, grated
  • flaky sea salt to taste
  • freshly cracked black peppercorns to taste

Equipment:

The Best Potatoes Ever

Directions:

ProTip: Use block cheese because freshly grated cheese always tastes so much better. Facts. You can grate the cheese a day or so ahead but my sure it is properly sealed in an airtight container to avoid the cheese absorbing other unwanted flavors from the fridge. I highly recommend using a box grater because they have more stability and off an assortment of grating sizes and styles.

  1. Place the sweet potatoes into a medium stockpot and add water until the potatoes are just covered. *Never add potatoes to boiling water. Why? Because when room temperature tubers are added to boiling, they will cook unevenly. The water and potatoes should always start at the same cool temperature to ensure the potatoes cook evenly. Cook the sweet potatoes over med-high heat until the potatoes are cooked through and the tines of a form can easily pierce the flesh of the sweet potatoes.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking prepare the browned butter by adding two sticks of unsalted butter to a saucepan over med-high heat. After the butter melts use a whisk or fork stir the butter until it begins to foam in about 7-8 minutes. Continue to stir until the milk fat particles start to brown. Remove the pan from the heat source and set aside.
  3. Drain the cooked potatoes and return them to the empty stockpot, add the browned butter, whole milk, and the shredded goat cheese and cave-aged Gruyère. Use the hand blender and mix the potatoes until silky and incredibly smooth. Finish with flaky sea salt and freshly cracked black peppercorns.
  4. Serve.

Easy Gormet Potatoes

Using a quality butter can make a massive difference in the outcome of any recipe and with this potato recipe using good butter is everything. I stand by my Land O’ Lakes! Why? First, this is the only butter my mama used, and grandmother used, and they wouldn’t stir me wrong. Second, Land O’ Lakes Extra Creamy Butter is 82% butterfat which means creamier texture and richer flavor.

Adding whole milk keeps this recipe completely one hundred! Plus, it ensures these cheesy potatoes are flawless. I am adding just the right amount of liquid to keep the potatoes loose and incredibly silky. The result is a great side dish you will love much more than regular mashed potatoes. Promise.
