I made these potatoes as recommended to go with the Buffalo Chicken Thighs (also reviewed - 2 stars as they need slight improvement; overall taste is good). We did not care for these potatoes at all. Red potatoes have a slightly sweet but delicate flavor and the blue cheese completely masks the potatoes. I felt like I was eating plain blue cheese crumbles, which just isn't for me. I don't believe adding less would improve the outcome. They were creamy and edible, but we won't be making them again - just not in our flavor profile wheelhouse I guess. If you love blue cheese (enough to just eat the crumbles alone), then this recipe would be a good choice for you.

Really good - I made my buttermilk using lemon juice and skim milk, and maybe that's why but I needed to add a little milk, otherwise was a little dry. Great flavor though!

Served for boxing night; the fight outcome was awful, but the CL buffalo chicken thighs got raved reviews :) Will def. make again and again. Served w/ the CL buttermilk-blue cheese smashed potatoes (which were also delish.) and sauteed green beans.

Excellent. Easy. Goes well with the Buffalo glazed Chicken Thighs in the magazine.
