Asiago Garlic Mashed Potatoes are cheesy, creamy and delicious!
These Asiago Garlic Mashed Potatoes will not disappoint. I can’t think of a single food that I have made in more ways than potatoes. They are one of my most favorite foods because they are so versatile (and yummy!). Potatoes can be whipped up in a few minutes, or they can take a few hours. One of my favorite ways to prepare them is mashed. The other thing I love about potatoes is that they go so well with cheese.
I chose to use Stella® Asiago cheese in this recipe, it gives my potatoes authentic Italian flavor. Creamy red potatoes, garlic, and nutty Asiago cheese go together perfectly.
Stella® has a wide variety of artisan cheeses that are great in recipes, to top your favorite dishes, or as a snack. Do you have a recipe using artisan cheese?

I use red potatoes in these Asiago Garlic Mashed Potatoes because the creamy potatoes and the creamy Asiago cheese are a match made in heaven. While I think potatoes are great with the peel left on, I chose to peel half of my potatoes so there isn’t too much of it in this dish.
Stella® cheese is available in a wedge or shredded. I chose to buy it shredded to make this dish that much easier to make. I also like to have it pre-shredded so I can add it to salads, eggs, or toasted bread.
