I love Asiago cheese and the flavor of it, although you can easily substitute freshly grated parmesan cheese in this recipe if needed. The cheese goes so well with the garlic, it is a perfect pair.
- 6 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes (I like Yukon Gold)
- 3⁄4 cup milk, warmed
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 1⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon white pepper
- 1 -1 1⁄2 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1⁄2 cup shredded asiago cheese
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- Cook potatoes in boiling water for 12-15 minutes or until fork-tender; drain.
- Mash potatoes using a potato masher or ricer.
- Add the warmed milk, sour cream, butter, salt, white pepper, and garlic, mixing well.
- Sprinkle in the shredded cheese and scallions, stirring until cheese starts to melt and incorporate.
- Serve hot.
I found the asiago cheese too strong in the potatoes. They tasted alright when we were eating them, but afterwards the smell that lingered from what was left in the pot gave us the withers.
Yummo! I made this only because I had tagged a recipe that needed 1 cup of mashed potato. Anyway I made as posted (removing the potato's for above recipe) after step #3. This was so delicious. I loved the asiago cheese in it. Thanks for posting. :)
What a great change from regular mashed potatoes! I love Asiago cheese in everything, so I knew I would adore this, and I was right, it was awesome and everyone wanted me to pass the dish for seconds! Good thing I doubled it!
