If you’re making this dish for Thanksgiving, you can prep it ahead of time. You can then finish the dish by baking it in the oven for 5-7 minutes, right before serving it.

I find that mashed potatoes are one of the hardest dishes to keep warm on the Thanksgiving dinner table, so this recipe is perfect for preventing cold, sad mashed potatoes. We all want warm, fun, flavorful mashed potatoes at our Thanksgiving dinners, am I right?! 😉

Rosemary Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes Ingredients

  • 2 lbs russet potatoes (peeled & quartered)
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp steak seasoning
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary (chopped)
  • 4 oz blue cheese crumbles

Rosemary Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Place the potatoes in a large pot of boiling water for 15 minutes, or until fork tender.

While the potatoes are boiling, add the butter,  garlic, black pepper, steak seasoning, kosher salt and rosemary to a small skillet over medium heat until the butter is melted.

Once the butter is melted, turn the temperature down to low and allow the flavors to combine for 5-10 minutes.

Once the potatoes are fork tender, drain the potatoes then return them back to the pot over low heat. Use an electric hand mixer to mash the potatoes. Hand mix in the garlic rosemary butter and half of the blue cheese.

Spoon the mashed potatoes into an oven safe bowl or casserole dish. Sprinkle the remaining blue cheese on top.
