  • 2 lbs 900 g of good mashing potatoes (I like Yukon Gold potatoes), peeled and cut in half
  • 6 Tablespoons 90 ml heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 Tablespoons 30 g butter
  • 2 Tablespoons 30g extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup grated Manchego cheese I buy a very cured one for added flavor


  • Add the potatoes to a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and then simmer until fork tender.
  • Drain the potatoes and mash with a potato mashed.
  • In the meantime, heat the cream, milk, butter, salt, and olive oil until warm.
  • Slowly add in the warm liquids while mashing.
  • You can optionally whip the mashed potatoes with a hand blender for a smoother texture (don't whip too much or the potatoes might become gluey).
  • Finally, fold in the grated Manchego cheese.
  • Taste for salt and adjust if necessary. Serve immediately.
  • To reheat, warm the mashed potatoes in the microwave and heat about 1/4 cup of whole milk separately. Drizzle in the whole milk little by little until the potatoes are at the desired consistency.
  • Enjoy!
