    1. Melt butter in a saucepan. Add the shallots and sauté until slightly brown in colour.

    3. Add enough water to cover the potatoes.
    4. Add the bay leaf, season with salt and cook until the potatoes are tender (about 20 minutes). Additional water may need to be added before potatoes are completely cooked.

    6. Gently stir in the Gouda cheese until velvety smooth. Adjust the seasoning and serve topped a swirl of cream.
