Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot and add 2 teaspoons salt and enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are very tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain and return the potatoes to the pot.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then crumble or chop.
  3. Combine milk, butter, ½ teaspoon salt. Warm in the microwave for 45 seconds. Pour over potatoes, add ¼ teaspoon pepper to the potatoes and mash to the desired consistency.
  4. Fold in the bacon and top with the blue cheese.
