  1. Not a big hit at my house. The onions cooked a lot faster than the potatoes and although I like blue cheese it was just overpowering. It also made for a funky smell in the house lol.
  2. We loved it. I did have to put about 1/2 cup water in with potatoes to really get them cooking and somewhat softer. Just kept stirring then. came out just delicious and savory. We had it with steak. Will make again for sure... and I'm not even a bleu cheese lover!:-)

  7. WOW!! What a great recipe. I would not change a thing. If you love blue cheese you'll love this recipe! I had to fry my potatoes a little longer than 20 min but you'll know when the potatoes are done and as soon as you add the blue chesse your mouth will be watering! Thanks - Read more ...
