Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
  • 4 large Russet potatoes (about 21/2 pounds) peeled and quartered
  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 6oz blue cheese, crumbled (use Gorgonzola cheese for a milder flavor!)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped chives to garnish

Cook potatoes in a salted boiling water until tender, about 15 minutes.


Drain the potatoes and pass through a potato ricer back into in to the pan (or use a potato masher if you like your mashed potatoes chunkier!)


Stir in the butter, cheese and heavy cream, salt and pepper and cook for a minute or until everything is incorporated. Taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly.


Garnish with chopped chives (and some more crumbled blue cheese, if you’re bold!) and serve!
