Yukon Whipped Potatoes with White Cheddar and Chives

Gold Yukon whipped potatoes with white cheddar and chives are the perfect side to a good hearty entree, like roasted brisket or chicken with lemon, garlic and white wine.   Use a rice ricer to get really smooth, or keep it a little chunky with just a good constant wooden spoon smash…or whip nicely with a hand mixer. You just can’t go wrong with this dish.   Mmmmm…
