  • 2 lbs Russet potatoes
  • 2 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 cup Butter unsalted
  • 1 cup Heavy cream divided
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 1 cup Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Fresh chives chopped


  • Peel and dice all your potatoes into 1 inch pieces
  • Place them in a large pot and cover them with water. Add 1 tablespoon of kosher salt and bring it to a boil. Cook the potatoes for approximately 10 minutes or until fork tender.
  • Melt the butter in a medium sized saucepan over medium to medium-high heat. Cook the butter, stirring often, until the butter begins to brown and become fragrant, around 5 minutes.
  • Once lightly browned, remove the butter from the saucepan and place it into a bowl and set aside.
  • When the potatoes are ready, drain them and return to the pot or mixing bowl.
  • Add 1/2 cup of the cream and blend until smooth with a hand mixer.
  • Add one egg yolk and beat into the potatoes. Once incorporated, add the other egg yolk and beat until combined well.
  • Slowly add the browned butter, discarding any burned bits, and continue to combine with hand mixer.
  • Add the Pecorino Romano cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper, 2 teaspoons of kosher salt, and the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream and beat until smooth.
  • Transfer the potatoes to a greased 3 quart baking dish. Smooth with a spatula.
  • Put your oven on high broil and place the oven rack to approximately 8 inches from the heat.
  • Broil the potatoes until the top is browned, approximately 5-6 minutes depending on your oven.
  • Once browned, remove from oven and garnish with chopped chives and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Salt and pepper to taste and serve.
