  • 2 cups milk

  • 10 rashers of bacon

  • 180g Stilton or similar blue cheese

  • 2 cups cream

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • a few sprigs of parsley


  • 1.

    Boil or steam the potatoes. Drain, then transfer to a saucepan with the milk and blend. Lightly grill the bacon.

  • 2.

    Crumble the stilton (reserving a little for a garnish) over the potatoes and gently stir it in. When the cheese has melted, add the cream, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat.
