I have been meaning to make a post about gluten-free side dishes I eat and like; when I was thinking about the foods I would like to include I felt like this one side dish deserves its own post, even though it is as simple as can be.
Blue cheese potatoes are my all time favorite way to eat potatoes, and I was always a happy child when my dad made these.
White potatoes have been a problem for me in the past, but it seems like I can eat them in moderation - without feeling like I would be dying from stomach pains - now days. If you are celiac, you might also have problems with things like white potatoes - it is something worth looking into if you still experience discomfort after you went gluten-free. Same thing goes for other starchy things like many gluten-free flour mixes, corn starch etc.
So, to celebrate my ability to digest potatoes I have been having them almost non-stop, not a wise thing to do if you a prone to allergies, but I will stop eventually, at least I will cut down to one portion per week so that I can still eat them occasionally.
This I tell myself while I decide to have some more of those delicious starchy potatoes.
The autumnal weather suits this particular potato recipe very well, along with many others, since it really has that lovely stick to your ribs quality, which at least I crave especially as the season turns colder.
I do love heavy foods whatever season it might be, but especially during the coldness of winter and fall.
My preparation for the cold season ahead has included, besides from eating foods that keep me warm, ordering a whole reindeer, half of an organic pig and I have thought about buying some organic beef and maybe one organic lamb. I will also be getting some organic winter vegetables from a local farm, so hopefully I will have a winter filled with tasty organic and local foods.
Not all blue cheese is gluten-free, so make sure yours is if you are celiac.
Blue Cheese Potatoes Recipe
-150-200 grams blue cheese, use less if it is something strong and more if you are using a milder cheese, I use a Finnish one called Aura which is not all that strong
-1 cup, 2,5 dl cream (heavy cream)
-7 medium sized potatoes, they should be already cooked; I usually use some leftover potatoes, those ready ones in the freezer work well too
Preheat the oven to 400 F or 200 C.
Slice the potatoes.
Pour the cream into a small saucepan and crumble the blue cheese into it. Let them melt together on a low heat.
Pour the cream mixture on the potatoes and bake them in the oven for 45-60 minutes.
I don’t use any salt or pepper in these since the flavor of the blue cheese is so strong and it also adds salt to the food.
