Dutch Potatoes, potatoes so good they are practically a meal on their own!

If you are looking for a dish of mashed potatoes that actually makes the meal, look no further! Dutch Potatoes will knock your socks off because they are creamy, full of additional vegetables, and finished off with sauteed onions and smoked Gouda cheese... 

I have been making Dutch Potatoes for years, and we never get tired of them. What exactly are Dutch Potatoes? A creamy bowl of mashed potatoes with added carrots, and kale. Once cooked and drained these lovely vegetables are finished off with a little milk, sauteed onions, and cubes of smoked Gouda Cheese. 

They are more than just good, they are totally delicious! They go together fairly quickly as well, making them perfect for those busy times as well. While the vegetables are cooking, saute the onions and dice the cheese. 

Once the cooked vegetables are drained, mash them, but leave them a bit chunky. Stir in some whole milk (or let's go big time and use some half and half...), the sauteed onions, roasted red pepper pieces, and the cubes of Smoked Gouda. 

Pile them into a bowl immediately and that way when you dish up these creamy, delicious, vegetable-filled potatoes, you will come across the Smoked Gouda cubes of cheese, where they will have melted into creamy little pockets of delicious smokey flavor.  

Dutch Potatoes do not need gravy! They are a complete side dish and go perfect with something as simple as meatloaf! They are also wonderful as part of a larger meal where several different side dishes are offered. But I can tell you this right now. the Dutch Potatoes will be eaten first...oh and why Dutch Potatoes?

Because these delicious potatoes were discovered on a delightful blog called Kayotic Cooking from Holland. While it appears Kay is no longer an active blogger, these potatoes must be enjoyed, because they are in fact that good!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • potatoes
  • carrots
  • kale
  • onion
  • butter
  • milk
  • salt 
  • Smoked Gouda Cheese
  • roasted red pepper
You will also need the following:
  • kitchen knife
  • cutting board
  • small saute pan
  • large saucepan with lid
  • potato masher
  • serving bowl
Now we are ready to begin!


Dutch Potatoes
from Kayotic Kitchen

6 medium potatoes
3 large carrots
1 bunch kale, I use Tuscan Kale for this recipe
1 onion
2 T butter
1 t salt 
milk, as needed
1 roasted red pepper*
1 c diced Smoked Gouda Cheese, or regular Gouda if preferred
additional salt and pepper to finish


Peel the potatoes and the carrots set aside. Wash and chop the kale. Slice the carrots, and cut the potatoes into large chunks. In a large saucepan, place the kale on the bottom, the carrots on the kale with the potatoes on top. Cover with water, add 1 teaspoon of salt, cover with a lid. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, cook until tender, 20 minutes or so. Drain well. 


While the vegetables are cooking, dice the onion. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a saute pan, add the diced onion, saute over medium heat (adjust as needed to not scorch the onions) until tender and golden brown. Take care not to over-brown the onions, you want golden brown. Set aside. Dice the roasted red pepper set aside. Dice the Smoked Gouda Cheese set aside. 


Coarsely mash the vegetables, add 1/4 cup milk to the mashed vegetables. Stir gently adding more milk if needed for a creamy texture. Taste for seasonings, adjust if needed. Stir in the sauteed onions, roasted pepper, and the Smoked Gouda Cheese. Spoon potatoes into a serving bowl, and enjoy!


Storage options for Dutch Potatoes. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to three days. I do not recommend freezing this recipe. 


* we keep roasted red peppers in the freezer, individually wrapped to remove one at a time, as needed. They thaw quickly in the microwave, are easily peeled and de-seeded.

    1. Radha, this potato dish has been loved by my family for about 10 years now! I hope you love it as much as we do. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it!

  2. Looks good! I'm not a huge fan of smoked cheeses, so I'd probably use regular aged Gouda.

  3. I’ve never heard of potatoes prepped this way but it does look great. Veggies added in with potatoes makes a great side. Love smoked Gouda

  4. I wonder if it is just the addition of the cheese that makes this Dutch?

    1. Marg, thanks to your comment I went back and explained that the recipe was originally from a blog (apparently not active at this time) from Holland. Kay of Kayotic Kitchen presented these potatoes many (many) years ago. We loved them the first time I made them and have enjoyed them many times since. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it!

  5. I have started adding vegetables to my mashed potatoes as well, reduces the starch and increases our vegetable intake. I sometimes add parsnips or cauliflower or turnips. But the addition of Gouda sounds fabulous!!!
    Kale or spinach added to mash is an Irish dish, colcannon.

    1. Yes, I have made Colcannon many times. Honestly I do not remember what this potato dish was originally called (Kayotic Kitchen is no longer active) but she was based out of Holland, and when I decided to share the recipe, I wanted to show respect to the creator. I have enjoyed this dish, so many times through the years.
