  3. While mashed potatoes are in the microwave, mince about 6 of the larger sage leaves; setting aside the smaller sage leaves to use for garnish.
  4. Remove the mashed potatoes from the microwave and add in the 3 ounces of shredded Fontina cheese, minced sage leaves, and garlic powder. Stir until evenly blended. Pour the potato mixture into greased 8x8x2-inch casserole dish. Sprinkle top of potatoes with 2 ounces of the shredded cheese.
  5. Place in the preheated OVEN and broil on high until cheese is melted and bubbly and golden brown spots appear (about 5-8 minutes). Remove from oven.
