What Type of Potato to Use

When it comes to choosing a bag of potatoes at the grocery store for this recipe, reach for the Yukon golds! They are naturally more buttery than a regular Russet potato, which means that the mashed potato outcome is going to be even more decadent.

Yukon golds boil up nicely all while still holding onto their texture. Even when the are whipped together with cream, butter, cheese and herbs, the potatoes stay nice and fluffy without getting gritty or soggy.

These Asiago Herb Mashed Potatoes ride the fine line of being able to hold up to gravy and toppings, but instantly melt when they get in your mouth. It’s the type of mashed potato that makes you want to close your eyes and keep taking more bites. Like a creamy cloud of goodness.

What is Asiago Cheese?

If you haven’t had Asiago cheese, now is the time! To me, it is a more “pungent” cousin to the classic Parmesan cheese. But, not pungent in a bad way! It tends to be more creamy and have a slightly nutty taste to it. It’s just wonderful! 

Mixing in Asiago cheese to these potatoes really takes them to the next level. It adds layers of creaminess, nuttiness and that wonderful salty cheese flavor that we all love. It’s a match made in heaven! 

How to Serve

Since these Asiago Mashed Potatoes are so versatile, they can be used for SO many different occasions! They are my go-to mashed potato recipe for:

  • Thanksgiving / Friendsgiving
  • Christmas
  • Valentine’s Day
  • Comfort food companion
  • Date night
  • Dinner party
  • Potluck 

These mashed potatoes can be served up family-style for any gathering or holiday (perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas!), or plated to make a more classic meal. Serve them along side steak, chicken (grilled or fried), fish, Thanksgiving turkey, holiday ham, drizzle with gravy or just on their own. They can stand up to it all.

    Can you leave skins on?

      Yes you can! They will be more like “smashed” potatoes and have more of a texture instead of just creaminess.
