Potatoes Smothered in a Blue Cheese Sauce with Chives & Walnuts
Have you ever thought to yourself while cooking “Man this dish is just not doing it for me, I hope this wasn’t a waste of ingredients”, I do. This is one of those dishes, after thinking those "this food is gonna suck" thoughts I was very surprised when my husband proclaimed it to be heavenly…yah! SCORE.
15-20 red baby potatoes, skinned
3 celery stalks, sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
4-5oz blue cheese, crumbled
1 cup heavy cream
½ cup Walnuts, chopped
2 tbs Chives, chopped
1 tbs flour, for thickening of sauce
1 tbs butter
Salt & Pepper
Bring a hot pot of water to boil with your potatoes in it, boil for 15 minutes total – during the last 5 minutes add in your celery and red onion. Drain, toss with butter, cover, and set aside.
*Potatoes should not be totally MUSH, keep an eye on them while boiling.
In a small sauce pan heat your cream & blue cheese until combined, add in your flour and stir until thickened.
Pour your sauce over the potatoes and top with chives & walnuts –
Have a Fantastic weekend, try to have a nice glass of wine with a side of relaxation.
