Pommes aligot (cheese and garlic mashed potatoes)

Pommes aligot Easy Food

Serves 4-6

900g potatoes, peeled and quartered
Salt and black pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed
80g butter, at room temperature
250ml double cream, warmed
350g Gruyère or Raclette, rind removed and grated
300g Mozzarella, grated

  1. Place the potatoes in a pot. Add two teaspoons of salt and enough cold water to cover by 5cm. Bring a boil over a high heat, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
  2. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot over a low heat, stirring, until dry. For the smoothest results, pass the potatoes through a ricer into a large bowl, then return to the pot; otherwise, simply mash them thoroughly until very smooth.
  3. With the pot over a low heat, stir in the garlic, butter, cream and about half of the grated cheese.
  4. Once the cheese has melted, stir in the remaining cheese. Continue to beat with a wooden spoon until the potatoes can be stretched with a spoon like melted Mozzarella. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
