I love bleu cheese and am always looking for new dishes to incorporate it into. I had a hunk of bleu in the fridge, left over from making buffalo bleu cheese pizza recently, and rather than let it go bad, I immediately thought about adding it into mashed potatoes.
The bleu cheese was the perfect addition! My friend's husband mentioned that he doesn't like bleu cheese, but thought these were wonderful. As tempting as it may be to add more bleu to these potatoes ( I know, I wanted to, too), don't. Restrain yourself. You will thank me later, I promise. The bleu adds a nice understated flavor, almost like a faint aftertaste, that combines fantastically with the roasted garlic flavor.
I woke up the next morning after our dinner party and immediately pulled the leftover potatoes out of the fridge to reheat for breakfast. *sigh* Just as good as the night before.
I can't wait to make these again.
