Made this to accompany some small steaks, and it was a great side dish. I used russets, simply because that is what I had handy. I did have to add a bit more buttermilk, probably because my potatoes were a bit larger. An excellent combination.

Mmm, this was really good, and so quick to throw together. I left the peels on the potatoes as I usually do when I make mashed potatoes, and I used garlic salt instead of regular salt. The blue cheese was not at all overpowering, and just gave the potatoes a rich flavor. Loved it- I think I'll be making this a lot. [Made & Reviewed for Please Review My Recipe]

We really enjoyed these mashed potatoes. The buttermilk really gives the potatoes a rich tanginess and the blue cheese really adds another level of delicious flavor. Served these potatoes with Stuffed Pork Chops in Mushroom Cream Sauce and a side salad. Wonderful meal.
