I wanted to make mashed potatoes but I wanted something different too. These are so easy to make and taste like you worked good!

  2. Using a large wooden spoon, coarsely crush potatoes in pot.
  3. Stir in cheese, nuts, oil and arugula and toss to blend.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.

It may have been that I couldn't find heirloom potatoes and I had to use russets, but I found the mixture to be fairly dry. I didn't want to add more oil, so mixed a little ranch and sour cream to use as a topper. However, even without the topper, the flavors were great!

We enjoyed these potatoes. The gorgonzola is a fantastic and unexpected twist. There were six people at dinner tonight and they had varying comments -- some thought too much arugula, others thought too much cheese. But they all agreed that they liked it. Thanks so much PBShakes for a new take on mashed potatoes -- please post more of your recipes. Made, enjoyed and reviewed for Pick a Chef.
