Although it’s technically fall for another month, it feels and looks like winter up here in New England. All but a few persistent leaves have fallen to the ground, and the temps are hovering in the 30s and 4os. Brrrrrr.

Comfort food weather is officially here, and this recipe will make you feel all warm & cozy regardless of how cold it is outside.

First up we have blue cheese mashed potatoes. Creamy, hearty, satisfying, and with just enough blue cheese flavor to compliment its counterpart…

The classic combination of buffalo wings and blue cheese dressing is updated, lightened, and made a bit more elegant. There’s something about the spicy buffalo sauce & tangy blue cheese that just works well together. If you’re a fan of the flavor duo, you’re going to love this recipe!

Keywords: bake main entree chicken potatoes winter fall

Ingredients (4 servings)

    For the mini buffalo chicken meatloaves

    • 1 lb ground white meat chicken
    • 1/4 cup very finely grated carrot, preferably organic (I used a microplane grater)
    • 1 large egg, preferably organic
    • 1/4 cup unseasoned panko breadcrumbs
    • 1/4 tsp granulated garlic
    • 1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
    • 1/4 cup all-natural buffalo sauce, (mild, medium, or hot) such as Wing Time, divided use
    • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
    • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

    For the blue cheese mashed potatoes

    • 1 lb Yukon gold or red potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 2-inch pieces (I like to keep the skin on)
    • 1/4 cup 2% milk, preferably organic
    • 1 Tbsp butter
    • 1/4 cup plain 2% Greek yogurt
    • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
    • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
    • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

    Instructions

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, grated carrot, egg, panko breadcrumbs, granulated garlic, worcestershire sauce, 2 Tbsp buffalo sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix gently until ingredients are combined. Overworking the mixture might result in a less-tender meatloaf.

    Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal-sized portions and form each into a small loaf (about 4 inches long and 2 inches wide); place on prepared baking sheet. Evenly divide the remaining 2 Tbsp buffalo sauce over the top of the meatloaves; brush or smooth it over the top of each to create an even layer.

    Bake for 24-28 minutes, or until the meatloaves are done (internal temperature should register 165°F and they will be firm to the touch).

    While the meatloaves bake, prepare the mashed potatoes: Place chopped potatoes in a large saucepan/pot and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, and cook until potatoes are fork-tender, about 15 minutes.

    Drain the potatoes in a colander, then return to the saucepan/pot. Add in the milk, butter, Greek yogurt, salt, and pepper. Mash or whip with an electric mixer until desired consistency is reached. Stir in blue cheese and green onions.
