If you don’t know, I am the co-founder of Spiceology so you may see recipes on this blog that use blends or spice rubs from my company. I will always offer suggestions on how you can substitute other ingredients if you don’t have the spices or don’t want to invest in a jar.

Ingredients in Truffle Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

You just need a handful of ingredients to make a really flavorful and elegant mashed potato for this Thanksgiving or anytime you want a delicious potato side dish.

ingredients for truffle parmesan mashed potatoes
  • Yukon Gold Potatoes – because Yukon gold potatoes have a high starch content, ricing or mashing with a potato masher is best. Otherwise, if blended too long with a hand mixer they become “gluey” which is never a fun mashed potato texture.
  • Spices – we used Spiceology Truffle Parmesan blend in this recipe to add cheesy umami. See Tips below for substitutions.
  • Butter – unsalted is best so you can control the sodium. Taste your spuds before serving and adjust accordingly with salt & pepper
  • Milk – heavy cream and riced Yukon gold potatoes = love. The potatoes hold up well to the high fat heavy cream.

How to Make Truffle Parmesan Mashed Yukon Gold Potatoes

  1. Boil peeled and cubed Yukon Gold potatoes in salted water until fork tender. Remove and drain well. One tip I learned early in my cooking experience is “Potatoes Love Salt”.
  2. Rice the potatoes into a large bowl. Add the butter, cream, and spices and stir to combine.
  3. Top with chopped parsley and/or chives and more butter. Serve immediately.

  • Substitutions: if you don’t have Truffle Parmesan blend – you can substitute 1/4 cup fresh or canned parmesan cheese with a 1/4-1/2 teaspoon Truffle powder (or omit entirely).
  • Make it ahead: Boil and rice the potatoes up to 2 days before storing in an airtight container in the fridge. Warm over a double boiler and add the milk and butter mixture, spices, and stir to combine.
