Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes

St. Agur blue cheese is a soft double-cream cheese. It has a smooth creamy texture with a mild spicy taste.

You will need:
2 pounds red potatoes
6 cups water
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
4 ounces St. Agur blue cheese
3 tablespoons heavy cream

St. Agur Blue Cheese

Take the St. Agur cheese out of the fridge so it gets to room temperature. It will be so much easier to work with.

Red Potatoes

Fill a medium sized pot with 6 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of salt. Wash, peel and quarter the potatoes and throw them in the salted water.  Boil for 19 minutes or until tender.

In the meantime, melt 3 tablespoons of butter.
In a small bowl, mash the St. Agur with a fork, adding 3 tablespoons of heavy cream and 3 tablespoons of melted butter. It will be of soft, smooth and silky consistency.

Once cooked, drain the potatoes in a colander before mashing. 

Pour the creamy cheese mixture into mashed potatoes and combine well.

Adding Blue Cheese Mixture to the Mashed Potatoes
VoilĂ ! There you go. This was another quick and easy side dish.
