    Great summer sidedish. I think next time i will use less horseradish. it was a little over powering. Not a good dish for kids, but great for the adults.  -  28 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was GREAT! A really good flavor that tasted good even as leftovers. Warning: I used cream style horseradish instead of what the recipe called for. It really increased the heat!  -  01 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
