Oh my...I am from the midwest, and I still found these to be the most bland things I'd ever tasted. For starters, the two main ingredients in the topping are butter and flour. In restaurants, oil and flour are heated together to add to sauces as a thinckening agent that has no flavor to ruin the sauce's taste. Right there should be your (and should have been mine) cue that this recipe needs HELP. Not to mention that blue cheese as a salad dressing flavor is very flavorful, but actual cheese is not very potent at all...However, all that aside, this recipe has potential. Reduce the amount of potatoes for sure. Use way less flour or add about 3 times more cream. Add some seasoning besides salt and pepper...garlic, thyme, oregano, SOMETHING. And forget the blue cheese, despite the catchy name. Go for a soft, crumbly cheese with robust flavor, maybe an herb spiced feta. Do all this, and although you have a pretty much different recipe, you may be able to pull this off. Even with filet mignon, as is, you will be disappointed.
