Peel, rinse and chop potatoes. In a pot, boil water over a medium flame. Boil the potatoes, whole, until tender

4.  Remove and let them cool slightly before serving.

 

Notes: The cheese is subtle in this, so if you're looking for something with a noticeable cheese flavor/texture, you may want to add more. It also might benefit from the addition of onions.
