Number of Servings:
- 3 pounds - russet or Yukon gold potatoes peeled, cubed
- 1 1/2 teaspoons - salt
- 1/4 cups - olive oil
- 2 cloves - garlic thinly sliced
- 4 ounces - blue cheese crumbled
- - crushed red pepper flakes optional
In a Dutch oven or large stockpot combine potatoes, water to cover, and about half of the salt. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until potatoes are tender, reserving 1/2 cup of cooking water. Drain potatoes and return to pot.
In a skillet, heat olive oil with garlic and cook for 1 minute until garlic starts to brown. Mash into potatoes along with cooking water, crumbled blue cheese, the rest of the salt, and crushed red pepper to taste.
