Asiago & White Truffled Mashed Potatoes

  

Ingredients

6 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, unpeeled
1 stick (8oz.) unsalted butter
 2 medium cloves garlic
1 cup half & half
1 tablespoon Liquid Gold White Truffle Oil
1 cup 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 truffle oil.  Stir to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes so that mixture thickens and then serve.
