Out of all the recipes that I make, this one is by far everyone’s favorite! My Mother passed this Asiago Stuffed Red Potato recipe down to me years ago. The asiago stuffing is so good mixed with the creamy red potatoes. I bought these pretty little taters at Visser Farms market in Holland last week. I also had some of this cheese mixture left over from our dinner party and I threw it on some bread points last night and put it under the broiler. It is now my favorite cheese bread! This recipe is really so easy and makes such a beautiful presentation. Also your house will smell amazing with this bubbly cheese melting in your oven. The only utensil that you will need if you don’t already have one is a melon baller. I grew up in a household where my parent’s entertained a lot. My Mother was making lobster thermidor and beef tenderloin while our neighbors were having mac and cheese! Don’t get me wrong, I love mac and cheese. But let’s just say I grew up with a distinct palette. Every restaurant my parent’s took me to when I was little, I would order lobster with drawn butter! We would drive to Florida every winter since my Father was the Club Golf Pro, he had winters off. You can imagine the waitress’s surprise at Howard Johnson’s when we would show up for breakfast and I would order lobster! I would personally like to thank my Mom for teaching me the gourmet way of cooking long before it was popular. I have some awesome recipes from her. Also thanks to my Mom and Dad for showing me the art of entertaining, it has carried over to our lives now, and it’s truly my passion. I hope that we have passed it down to our boy’s. To see the joy in our friends faces when they come to our house to eat really makes my heart jump with joy. I love sharing our kitchen, our home, and delicious food! Thanks Mom and Dad, I love you with all my heart! What was your favorite meal as a child? Let me know what you think of this delectable Asiago Red Potato recipe! Love, Stacey
15 small red potatoes
1 cup mayonnaise
3 garlic cloves chopped and minced
1 1/2 cups of Asiago cheese grated
1/4 tsp sea salt or more to taste
1/4 tsp pepper
Paprika for sprinkling on top
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
Wash Red Potatoes and dry with a paper towel.
Cut ends off of both the top and bottom of the red potatoes.
With the Melon baller, scoop out the middle of the potatoes, being careful not to tear the edges.
Carefully drop into boiling water and cook until just tender, about 12 to 15 minutes.
Add cold water to stop the cooking process and drain each potato on paper towel.
In a mixing bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, asiago cheese, garlic and salt and pepper. Stuff each potato with a teaspoon full of the cheese mixture and sprinkle paprika on top. Bake in a 375 degree oven until the cheese topping is brown and bubbly.
