Those Potatoes

"I have been making this for Christmas dinner for 20 years. Great with roast beef or ham. I substitute half and half for the cream and use regular black pepper, because it's what I have on hand."

    Boy-o-boy-o-boy these are good. I used unsalted butter and garlic powder instead of salt. The combination of Roquefort and Parmesan flavours is just delightful.

    These were very good. Comfort food. Just I found the sauce a bit to thick so I suggest cutting back on the flour 3 tablespoons should be plenty. Thanks

    Great Recipe! I made this as one part of a dinner that we do for 25 in December. Everyone LOVED it! Had to tell a number of them where to get the recipe. I used the 1/2 & 1/2 instead of the cream and it was plenty rich! All your directions were spot on. Thanks for making me look great!! October 2006 Made this again for our "Family Dinner". Substituted a Double Glouster for the Roquefort. My Guests liked it even better than before. I'll ALWAYS keep this one for special occasions!

    I prepared this dish for Father's Day. I can understand why you've made it for 20 years! Everybody raved about the taste, from myself to in-laws to picky kids! Your tradition will be one of ours from now on. I made it the day ahead because my oven would be taken up with the prime rib, and gently heated it in the microwave. Also, I used fat-free half-and-half and blue cheese because it's what I had on hand. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing it, Su!

    EXCELLENT potatoes!!! The combination of ingredients goes perfectly to make a wonderful sauce for the potatoes. Would not change a think. Thanks so much for sharing this, Susanrussell.
