This Thanksgiving side deserves a place in your dinner rotation all year. I’ll be making this for the family in Atlanta in a few weeks—want to swing by and help me stir? (And, if in the U.S., try to find Thomasville Tomme from Sweet Grass Dairy in Thomasville, Georgia.)
Recipe: [for two, or one with leftovers] Quarter four medium potatoes and cover with water in pot. Bring water to boil; cook for 20 min. Drain in colander. Add potatoes back to warm pot, stir in .75lb of diced cheese (Tomme or Tomme + Raclette) and one large diced garlic clove. Add 1/4c raw milk, whole milk, or cream. Stir, making figure eights, adding dairy until desired consistency. Sprinkle with salt; serve.
