Be the champion of the holidays this year with Dan-O’s Cheesy Mashed Potatoes! These mashed potatoes are loaded with roasted garlic, fontina cheesy goodness, and that Yum Yum Get Ya Sum with the Dan-O’s Original bringing that Dan-good flavor. These cheesy mashed potatoes are bound to be a hit at your table for years to come and, without a doubt, your family will be asking you to them year round.
As you might have guessed, cheesy mashed potatoes have cheese in them. Fontina cheese to be exact. This is a cow’s milk cheese hailing from italy originally but is now made all over the world. It’s a semisoft cheese, hard in texture with a medium body. It’s often considered mild with a distinct nutty savoriness to it. If you were to want to experiment with different cheeses in these cheesy mashed potatoes, you could try a gruyere, or a good gouda. A mild provolone, or Emmental would also be a fine substitute.
Part of what makes these cheesy mashed potatoes so good is the roasted garlic. When roasted, the garlic mellows out into a delightfully caramelized, buttery soft, and slightly sweet treat that elevates a dish to the next level. Combining the roasted garlic with the Dan-O’s Original and the fontina cheese sauce creates a symphony of flavors that has to be tried to believe.
