Smashed Potatoes with Stilton

Smashed Potatoes with Stilton

Serves 8

This is a rich side dish, ideal for serving with holiday roasts. Buy a larger wedge of Stilton (this recipe needs only about 1 1/2 ounces) and serve the remainder at another meal with quince spread or a jar of cranberry chutney.

  • 2 1/4 pounds small red potatoes, scrubbed and halved
  • 2/3 cup warm milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Stilton cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped toasted walnuts

Put potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold salted water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat, lower heat and simmer, covered, until very tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and return potatoes to the pan. Add milk, butter and salt; mash with a potato masher or large fork just until mixed and chunky.

To serve, reheat potatoes if necessary (add more water or milk if they seem too stiff). Spoon onto a platter and sprinkle with Stilton and walnuts.
