I love rustic mashed potatoes. And when I say rustic, I’m referring to mashed potatoes that include the skin and are hand-mashed, leaving a chunkier version. Some prefer smooth mashed potatoes, I personally like me some chunky mashed potatoes. The Yukon gold potatoes are great for mashed rustic mashed potatoes because they’re creamy and the skin is much lighter compared to red or russet potatoes.
In addition to the Yukon gold potatoes, you’ll add in fresh parmesan cheese, butter, heavy cream, and a hint of fresh thyme. Seriously, so rich and delicious. These mashed parmesan potatoes are the definition of an elevated classic.
