Recipe by Breanna in T.O
This is an amazing alternative to mashed potatoes! It's creamy, rich and all around great comfort food! Don't be hesitant about the blue cheese the flavour is subtle in the prepared dish. If you can't get gorgonzola try Stilton, or Roquefort or any good quality blue cheese. I love this dish anytime-warm, cold, at dinner or as a midnight snack-yum!
