  • 1 pound red potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
  • 2 to 3 ounces blue cheese
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup milk or half-and-half
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Chives, for garnish


Place potatoes in a pot of boiling, salted water. Cover and cook until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

Transfer cooked potatoes to a bowl and add blue cheese, butter, milk, salt and pepper. Mash potatoes, skins and all, until all of the ingredients are blended. Add a little extra milk if potatoes are too dry. Sprinkle with snipped chives.

Special notes:

You may make these potatoes up to 1 day in advance. Transfer them to a casserole dish and store them, covered, in the refrigerator. To serve: bake at 350° F for 20 to 25 minutes, or until heated through.
