Gorgonzola Mashed Potatoes with Fried Onions

Well, I can't seem to get my picture to cooperate so this is going to remain at the top of the post, rather than below. Are you salivating yet?

This recipe was an amazing twist on mashed potatoes and all credit due to fellow blogger, Anne, at AnnieBakes. I made this version and my regular potatoes with chives, horseradish and sour cream for Thanksgiving. They were both very well received, completely demolished by the family. I look forward to making these again and highly recommend them for you to try!

Grocery List:
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, chopped (don't mince, keep thick and in full slices for flavor)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5 Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 3/4 cup light milk
  • 1/4 cup Gorgonzola cheese, or to taste
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped

In a skillet heat 2 tablespoons butter on medium heat then add the onions. I decided to add slivers of garlic to this recipe. Add garlic to onions and fry until golden brown.

By the time I got to my aunt's she had already peeled and boiled the potatoes so I'll skip that step but go ahead and do that part. Drain the potatoes and put in a mixing bowl. Add the butter and the milk, mix together using electric beaters. Stir in the Gorgonzola and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the potatoes to your serving bowl and top with the fried onions, garlic and fresh chives, then ta-da, fantastic!

Now I will refer to the picture at the top: the one on the right is Gorgonzola and Fried Onion version, the one on the left is my signature sour cream, horseradish and chive potatoes. I placed them in the same aluminum casserole dish and kept warm in a buffet warmer.
