Recipe: Bleu Cheese Mashed Potatoes

I’ve been making this recipe for a while actually. I stumbled upon it by accident. One day I threw John’s favorite bleu cheese dressing into our mashed potatoes. (I try to keep it interesting, ya’ll.) Well John went nuts and I haven’t made plain mashed potatoes in some time.
The key here is a delicious bleu cheese dressing. But Kim, you say, that’s not very classy. I know folks. Thing is, I tried to make this with crumbled bleu cheese. It’s just too strong! The dressing provides a creamy base that mellows the bleu devil.
Kim’s Bleu Cheese Mashed Potatoes (This will make a smallish batch, good for 2-3 servings)
7 small red bliss potatoes, quartered
3/4 cup of your favorite bleu cheese dressing
1/3 cup milk (I used lowfat on account of the bleu cheese dressing, you could use full fat though)
2 tsp. butter, Smart Balance, what have you
1 handful of parmesan cheese
Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
Boil water, chop your potatoes while you wait, boil potatoes until tender (10-15 minutes) then drain.

Blend together with a hand mixer. Serve to happy fiancee.
FYI: This is the perfect side dish to my black pepper crusted pork chops!
