Spice Up Your Summer Side Dishes With Stella Cheese!

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?

  1. I’m thinking this would be great for some kind of pasta bake, like a lasagna. I would never have thought of putting mozzarella in mashed potatoes, but I’m sure it was yum!

  2. I love this meal, even though its summer and so hot out I find I still want comfort food. Maybe I can make the potatoes with a side of something refreshing!
