Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Blue cheese mashed potatoes make the perfect complement to beef, especially prime rib / ribeye. mjskitchen.com

For Thanksgiving this year Bobby smoked a standing rib roast and for one of the sides, we made these Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes.  What a fantastic pairing!  The roast was smoky, medium rare with a spicy crust on the outside.  The potatoes provided a creamy, buttery, and slightly cheesy complement.   Other sides included this Candied Pecan, Pear & Pomegrante Salad but with a white balsamic vinaigrette, a relish tray that my SIL put together of a variety of homemade pickles along with deviled eggs, roasted vegetables, and fennel infused onion.  What a feast!!!
