A Delicious Savory Potato Side Dish

I love blue cheese.

If a blue cheese burger is on the menu when we eat out, I’m usually getting it. Blue cheese and beef pair beautifully.

This side dish of new potatoes in a savory blue cheese and black peppercorn sauce is delicious with lamb as well. In fact, I created it as a side to the leg of lamb I made for Easter dinner. My family loves this dish!

I bought these new potatoes at the grocery store. I can’t wait for the potatoes in my garden to be ready so I can use them to make this side dish!

Not Just for Potatoes

We like the sauce in this recipe as a topping for steaks and hamburgers as well. Just try not dipping red meat in it! The course ground black pepper I use is from Corky’s Cookout. It’s a great blend of course ground peppercorns that seasons meats and sauces well.
