The general idea of the flavors (potatoes/BlueCheese) sounded great, but the recipe is ALL WRONG. Should probably be around 3T. Butter and 3T. Flour and NOT 1/2 cup of each. That would make a very thick sauce, or if cooked for 20 minutes, I would think a brick. I started the recipe not realizing the measurements and ended up making around a triple batch. The recipe has you cooking the flour for 5 minutes and then after adding the flour, cooking an additional 20 minutes. I think the person making the recipe just meant it to be 2 cups of a white sauce and then add blue cheese. If I make this again, I would do as above (probaby use 2C milk instead of 1/2 cream), and also add onion to the butter or maybe onion powder. If you add too many seasonings I could see them taking away the mild flavor of the blue cheese (which will be mild once mixed with potatoes). Altogether, I like the idea of adding blue cheese for something totally different than what we would normally cook, but the recipe is totally wrong. I felt I wasted a lot of Blue Cheese on my first try, which is considered a luxury food in our household. I am leaving a 2 star review just for the unique idea of this dish. What a clever idea of adding Blue Cheese to potatoes. Made my mouth water just thinking about it.
