How to make it

  • For the rosemary butter: Place softened butter in bowl and whisk in remaining ingredients. Remove butter mixture from bowl and spoon onto parchment paper or plastic wrap. Roll into a log, using the edge of a baking sheet to form a tight log. Chill for 2 hours before serving.
  • For the mashed potatoes: Peel and quarter the potatoes lengthwise, then cut into 1-inch wedges. Put in a heavy medium saucepan with 1 teaspoon of the salt and add enough cold water to cover by 1-inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 25 minutes. Drain in a colander. Put potatoes through a ricer and return the potatoes to the saucepan. Add the cream, butter, the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, and the pepper. With the heat on medium-low and stir the mixture until well blended, 4 to 5 minutes. Mix in 4 oz blue cheese and mash to incorporate (use remaining blue cheese for garnish).
  • For the pork chops: Dry the chops with paper towels and season generously with salt and pepper. Place a sprig of rosemary down on each chop and wrap a strip of bacon around each one, securing with a toothpick if needed. Prepare medium-hot fire in grill; grill chops over direct heat for 6-7 minutes; turn and grill 5-6 minutes more for medium doneness. Transfer to plate, tent with foil and let rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • To serve: Remove toothpick and rosemary sprig (leave bacon on, of course!) Serve each chop with a pat of rosemary balsamic butter and side of blue cheese mashed potatoes garnished with left over blue cheese and chopped fresh parsley.
