Blue Cheese Mashers

2-1/2 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
2 Tbsp. minced garlic
2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup dry white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup whipping cream
4 oz. blue cheese, crumbled
Sliced green onion (optional)
1. In a 4-quart Dutch oven cook potatoes with 1/2 teaspoon salt, covered, in enough boiling water to cover for 20 minutes or until tender.

2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan cook onion and garlic in hot butter until onion is tender. Stir in wine. Bring mixture to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 4 minutes or until reduced to 1/2 cup.

3. Drain potatoes. Mash with a potato masher or beat with an electric mixer on low speed. Add wine mixture, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon back pepper. Gradually beat in whipping cream to make potato mixture light and fluffy. Fold in blue cheese. Top with green onion. Makes 10 (1/3-cup) servings.
