I had some leftover blue cheese after making my roasted potato salad with blue cheese dressing. Now I didn’t want to be wasteful, so I went on the hunt for the perfect recipe to use up my leftovers. And I kept coming back to this recipe from the Pioneer Woman. The weird thing was I’d made it before and found it so-so. But every time I looked for a recipe with blue cheese – this one just spoke to me.
Finally I gave in and made it again. And boy – I don’t know if my taste buds were wacky the first time I made it or what, but this is crazy good. Crazy, wonderful and oh so yummy good.
The sauce comes together quickly and reheats nicely. I served it over polenta, which was a perfect accompaniment. I love polenta, and it soaks the flavors of the blue cheese sauce beautifully. If you don’t have polenta or don’t like it – I think this would be fabulous with mashed potatoes too. Granted, I think everything tastes better with mashed potatoes
I’m so glad that I gave this recipe another change. It’s so good and so easy. And further proof that sometimes first impressions are incorrect!
