Garlic mashed potatoes with blue cheese and arugula. This is a nice intro to arugula which is bitter and the mixture with potatoes and cheese calms it.

Yum! I did this as a twice baked potato as another reviewer did. Excellent. It was the first time I ever had arugula in anything other than a salad and now I will use it more often. Thanks Rita!!

This has the best flavor. I served it with a garlic marinated pork loin and the flavors complemented each other.

This was pretty good. I used it as a twice baked potato. Followed the recipe and added baked potato then stuffed it back into the potato skin. Nice side dish with steak or chicken.
