Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

    20 minutes

    Mashed potatoes are a classic side dish but they can be a little bland. They don't have to be though, if you jazz them up with horseradish and sour cream!

    Very good mashed potatoes made even better with the addition of half again as much horseradish and some cream cheese. I didn't measure any of the ingredients exactly, nor did I follow all the steps in the recipe which were unnecessary. I just mixed up all the ingredients together, adding extra horseradish and some cream cheese, then added the mixture, using a potato masher,to the cooked Yukon Golds which I left unpeeled.  -  16 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used red potatoes with the skins and this worked out well. Instead of sour cream I used some 1/2 and 1/2 cream and put all the butter in the mixture. The parsley gives it some nice color and flavor.  -  03 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    taking the advice of naples, i used the full amt. of horseradish called for even though i only used three potatoes. after boiling/draining the pots, i also threw everything together and mashed away. i had to add a little milk because mine were waaaaay too dry. in the end they turned out fabulous and i'm glad to have come across this recipe.  -  07 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
