There’s nothing more satisfying than a jacket potato topped with grated cheddar, a hearty cheddar and potato pie or a salad sprinkled with chunks of punchy Stilton. Cheese and potatoes are a match made in heaven, so we’ve rounded up our top 10 favourite cheesy potato recipes to celebrate this iconic pairing.  

Choose from impressive dinner party dishes, filling salads, quick lunches and convenient breakfast muffins. All our recipes are tried and tested to make sure you get delicious dishes every time.  

1. Chesnut gnocchi with blue cheese & crispy sage

Looking for an indulgent sharing dish that’s full of earthy flavours? This make-ahead gnocchi recipe with herby sage, a smooth wine sauce and chunks of creamy blue cheese is the ultimate winter warmer. To save time, cook your gnocchi in advance and keep them on a tray in the fridge to re-heat in your sauce later on. 

2. Kale, goat’s cheese and new potato salad

This simple, summery salad is nourishing and packed with flavour and texture. Pair grilled goat’s cheese with roasted potatoes, beetroot, asparagus and a simple balsamic glaze. Take advantage of seasonal new potatoes and make them the star of this eye-catching dish.  

3. New potato and blue cheese omelette 

Try making this easy omelette for a filling lunch in just 25 minutes. Stuffed to the brim with fresh tomatoes, wilted spinach, blue cheese and potatoes, not only will it keep you fuller for longer but it’s chock-full of nutritious veg that’ll do you good. Whip up a substantial meal with a handful of everyday ingredients. 

4. Scalloped potatoes with smoky chipotle sauce

Finely sliced potatoes, a smoky, creamy sauce and plenty of parmesan, this is the ultimate side dish. Cook in the oven until the top is golden brown or cook on the barbeque for extra added smoky flavour. Serve with your favourite green veg or as a twist on the classic dauphinoise for your next Sunday dinner. 

5. Cheese, onion & potato pithivier  

Our puff pastry cheese, onion and potato pie makes an attention-grabbing centrepiece and can be made with ready-made puff pastry. Layer up rounds of potato, onion and a hard cheese such as Emmental or cheddar and decorate with score lines for a final flourish. Well worth the effort, a slice of this beauty will keep you going all day. 

6. Cheesy potato & bacon breakfast muffins

Make a grab-and-go breakfast and use up leftover mashed potato all in one fell swoop with our cheesy potato muffins. They’re just as delicious eaten ‘al desko’ in the office as they are eaten warm as part of a hearty fry up. These golden-brown bites are also delicious eaten with fried eggs and are perfect for mopping up a runny yolk. 

7. Cheesy potato fritters 

One for the veggies, our easy cheesy potato fritters with sweetcorn make a light, tasty meal. For a smokier flavour, try making your fritters on the barbeque, grilling them in a large skillet pan or on a plancha. Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt for dipping and a sprinkling of freshly chopped chives. 

8. Redcurrant lamb cutlets with thyme & goat’s cheese mash

Mashed potatoes can only be improved with the addition of one ingredient – cheese. We love a classic, but why not experiment and try our goat’s cheese and thyme mash, served with succulent lamb cutlets marinated in redcurrant jelly, red wine, herbs and a surprising secret ingredient to add a little sweetness. 

9. Potato & leek soup with blue cheese croutons 

Upgrade your standard leek & potato soup with the addition of moreish blue cheese croutons. Gorgonzola works particularly well with crispy croutons and stands up to the rich flavours of the soup. Great for a special occasion starter or a filling autumnal supper. 

10. Baked new potatoes with a blue cheese glaze

Our mouth-watering lunchtime dish takes just 15 minutes to prepare and is ideal for serving with a simple green salad. Top roasted new potatoes with a soft blue cheese such as Cornish blue or Lincolnshire Cote Hill Blue, throw everything in the oven and serve when your cheese is melted and bubbling.  

11. Crispy smashed new potatoes with whipped feta 

Served hot or cold, this stunning summer sharing dish is one to impress your friends and family. Top a base of creamy whipped feta with crispy, golden brown new potatoes, toasted walnuts, marinated red and yellow peppers and fresh basil. This colourful plateful is perfect come barbeque season.
