Roasted Potatoes with Warm Blue Cheese Sauce

Roasted Potatoes with Warm Blue Cheese Sauce

Somewhere, probably, there’s a rule written down that goes something like ‘don’t eat all of the warm blue cheese sauce before you serve the roasted potatoes’. If there is such a rule, I ignored it because the sauce is fantastic. And yeah, it really is great with roasted potatoes. Tender, buttery potatoes that have that slight skin ‘pop’ when you bite into them. Perfect.

Roasted Potatoes with Warm Blue Cheese Sauce

I sometimes find that too much fresh rosemary is a not a good thing. It can be a bit overwhelming. I totally did not find that to be the case with these roasted potatoes with warm blue cheese sauce. Not even at all. The amount of rosemary is spot-on, and I think the dish needed every bit of it. I would not cut back on it even though my first though was to do just that.

The blue cheese sauce is great on other roasted vegetables too, like green beans, asparagus, you name it. And baked potatoes!
