Do you eat dinner as a family? We do our best to every night and keep it pretty simple during the week. However, we try to switch things up on the occasional Sunday, and this weekend we had a delicious meal courtesy of my mama!
She had a taste for smothered pork chops and cabbage and we were all ok with that! I wanted to contribute with a quick and easy side, and thanks to Stella® Organic Fresh Mozzarella we had some creamy and extra cheesy mashed potatoes that were the perfect compliment to our meal!
Since summer is in full swing and I’m a thousand years pregnant (ok, 37 weeks, lol), the last thing I wanted to do was stand in the hot kitchen for long. I took a short cut and whipped up some instant potatoes, but they sure were delicious with the tasty addition of mozzarella!
I simply followed the instructions on the box, added 1/4 cup sour cream and a 1/2 cup of Stella® Organic Fresh Mozzarella to give it the added umph it needed. Then I topped it off with parsley flakes and dinner was served!
The best part is that even though I was generous in the amount of cheese I put in the potatoes, I still have plenty more to play with this week. Perhaps a caprese salad board or one of the many great recipes found at stellacheese.com will be in order!
The summer is a great time to experiment and have some fun with food. It all starts with great quality ingredients, and with a little bit of imagination the most mundane meals can be magnificent!
How will you use your Stella® Fresh Mozzarella?
