Asiago potatoes

This recipe is one that comes from me being desperate to find something to do with a bag of Little Creamer Potatoes. I was grilling pork chops for my family and wanted something different to have with it. Standard had always been potatoes, carrots, and onions wrapped in tin foil and grilled. Had the bag of little potatoes that I had bought on a whim and wondered what I could do with them. Don’t know why scalloped potatoes popped in my head but it did. Couldn’t use them for that but the idea was make something similar.

1 bag Little Creamer Potatoes  (any color or the multi color is the one I like)

4 cloves garlic finely chopped

1/4 cup of chopped chives ( I grow chives in our flower bed)

1/3 cup grated Asiago cheese

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon flour

1 cup of half & half cream

1/2 teaspoon salt, plus 1 teaspoon

1/3 teaspoon pepper

big pinch of nutmeg

Put  the potatoes in a pot of cold water with 1 teaspoon of salt on high heat. You need to make a cream sauce. Add butter, salt pepper, and garlic to a pot on low heat, cook for 5 minutes or until the garlic is soft. Add the flour and raise heat to medium, cook for 2 minutes whisking constantly, add half & half slowly, whisking as you do. When it has thickened add pinch of nutmeg, and Asiago cheese. You want the sauce to be thick but not like glue, if it is to thick add more half & half. Simmer until the potatoes are cooked. Drain potatoes, add chopped chives, sauce to the potatoes and stir.

My family all said it was the best potato dish they’ve had. Our son-in-law hates cheese but loves my Asiago potatoes. Asiago is my favorite cheese but you can use what ever hard cheese you like.
