Method

  1. Gently boil potatoes in lightly salted water until tender, about 18 to 20 minutes.
  2. Drain potatoes well and then thoroughly mash. Whip in buttermilk and butter until well combined; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Mix the chives and crumbled blue cheese into the potatoes, save a little of both to decorate the top. Spoon potatoes into a serving dish, decorate top with the remaining chives and blue cheese, and serve.

Recipe Options: If you don't care for the intense taste of blue cheese, try feta cheese in the potatoes instead. For less tangy mashed potatoes, use regular milk instead of buttermilk. For golden-hued potatoes, use Yukon gold potatoes instead of russets.
