Default Horsey Mashed Taters

Horseradish Mashed Potatoes Recipe

8 large red potatoes, diced with peel on
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon horseradish**
salt and pepper to taste

How to make it
Boil potatoes until tender. Drain well. Add butter, cream and horseradish, then mash well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add alternative ingredients if desired just before serving or sprinkle over top.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings

**I like to use the Horseradish sauce from Arby's... I use 6 packs. You can also use prepared horseradish which can kick it even more (as listed above)

Want to make it even more exciting? Add 2 tablespoons of crumbled bacon (not the bits get the real bacon pieces) and chop up & add the greens from 2 spring onions (not the white bits).

That Arby's horseradish sauce is really good stuff...

Someone once bought me a bottle of that for my fridge. It didnt last long. Now I just make whoever helps me there, when I break down and go to Arbys throw about a billion packets in the bag per sandwhich.

That sounds really good! Thanks for sharing Mark. My daughter brought the mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner. She put cream cheese in them. I had never thought of that either. They were the creamiest, best tasting potatoes ever, well up to now. Definately gonna try this recipe.
