Apologies for the lack of measurements (I cook local and by feel), but here is my recipe for hearty and rich mashed potatoes.


  • Peeled potatoes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Sugar
  • Bay leaf
  • Garlic Powder
  • Mustard Powder
  • Dill
  • Brie cheese


  1. Add salt, pepper, bay leaf, a healthy helping of dill, a couple of pinches of sugar, and a pinch of mustard powder to a pot of water and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the potatoes and reduce the temperature to medium-low. Infuse potatoes on medium-low for about an hour or until cooked.
  3. * Note that the idea is to cook the potatoes very slowly, we’re infusing them with the awesome herbs we threw in. Cut a large slice of brie cheese, then tear it into pieces.
  4. * Note that I leave the crust on, which imparts a nice texture and enriches the flavor; however, the crust adds some bitterness, so if you use it, add another pinch of sugar to the potatoes right before mashing. Place cooked potatoes in a bowl and add 2 or 3 spoonfuls of the infusing liquid.
  5. Mash away.
  6. I cook for a picky eater and this is one of the few dishes that fly out of the bowl faster than I can mash.
  7. The finished product will look very much like standard Midwestern “whipped” or “mashed” potatoes. which my fussy eater enjoys, but the richness and simplicity are appealing to foodies like me looking for a punched-up simple dish.
  8. Prepared, tried, and tested by: Dan CohnΒ 
  • Make tomorrow more amazing than today!
  • Just believe in yourself and dream big.
  • Do not give up on your hopes. Take care always.
