Cheesy Mashed Potatoes with Caramelized Onion



40 mins

6 servings


– Golden potatoes – Sea salt – Whole milk – Butter – Black pepper – Gruyere cheese – Parsley – For the caramelized onions – Onion – Butter – Sugar – Salt & pepper

Step 1

First thing’s first, you need to caramelize the onions. Add butter, onion, sugar, and salt to a skillet (I am using a cast-iron skillet) and sauté over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Cook for 20-30 minutes, or until the onions are caramelized. Stir a few times along the way to ensure even cooking and avoid burnt bits. Add more butter or oil if needed. Set caramelized onions aside.

Step 3

Add potatoes to a large pot and add just enough water to cover the potatoes. Add salt and bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until potatoes are fork-tender.

Step 4

Drain the potatoes and return them back to the pot. Using a potato masher, begin mashing. Add milk, butter, salt, and pepper, then mix using a hand mixer.

Step 5

Grab the caramelized onions and toss about 1 cup of them into the potatoes along with 1 cup of cheese. Stir to combine.

Step 6

Serve warm garnished with parsley and a sprinkle of black pepper, if desired.
