Asiago & White Truffle Mashed Potatoes
Add a little decadence to any Holiday meal with these rich and fluffy mashed potatoes!
6 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, unpeeled
1 stick (8oz.) of unsalted butter
2 medium cloves of garlic
1 cup of half & half cream
1 tablespoon of Di Oliva White Truffle Oil
1 cup of grated Asiago Cheese
Sea salt & fresh cracked black pepper to taste
Optional: Finely minced, fresh chopped flat leaf parsley for garnish
Dice potatoes, making sure all are relatively the same size. Place in a large saucepan add the salt, and cover with hot water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and then reduce heat to maintain a rolling boil. Cook until potatoes are tender throughout when poked with a fork. Heat the half-and-half, butter and the garlic in a medium saucepan over medium heat until simmering. Remove from heat and set aside. Remove the potatoes from the heat and drain off the water. Mash and add the garlic-cream-butter mixture, grated Asiago and Di Oliva Truffle Oil. Stir to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes so that mixture thickens and then serve.
