Pommes Aligot fail: please help me figure out why

Rasam | Nov 24, 201807:56 AM     3

We tried to make Pommes Aligot, following the recipe here: https://www.tastingtable.com/cook/rec...
We followed it quite exactly for technique.
Used Yukon Gold potatoes, and a Gruyere type cheese recommended for this dish by a local awardwinning cheese maker, and Mozzarella.
It never got stretchy, just stayed in a smoothish mass, no matter how much we stirred.
Has anyone made this dish successfully at home using Gruyere and Mozzarella? What's the secret?
Thanks in advance.

Pommes Aligot Recipe

Pommes aligot, mashed potatoes enriched with some cream and plenty of melted Tomme (cheese), may just be one of the finest ways to eat potatoes.
