Horseradish Mashed Potatoes ala Paige

My friend Paige and I used to cook together while we lived in the same apartment complex. But then she decided to move back to Atlanta...what can I say? Life is not fair sometimes.

Last week I made one of Paige's "recipes": Mashed Potatoes with Horseradish!

I know it might sound a bit off, but I really hope you try it.

All you do is cook potatoes till tender (I used red skinned potatoes and did not peel them). Mash potatoes as you normally would with milk and butter, and then add horseradish to taste.

The horseradish really gives the potatoes a bit of a zing (or a lot, depending on the amount you put). You can also go completely crazy by using beet horseradish: it would give your mashed potatoes and fun pink color.




What do you add to your mashed potatoes to make them less boring?

oh i'm flattered my recipe gets on olga's blog! i will add you should definitely include a little bit of garlic and black pepper to the recipe. also creamed horseradish works best although buy a fancy brand not a store brand for creamed horseradish.

You know, that actually sounds pretty good. Typically, I'm not a horseradish fan, but I can definitely imagine how it would taste good with mashed potatoes!

Hope your Wednesday is a good one ;)

I am a huge horseradish fan and it's a great idea to spice up potatoes this way! Thanks!

Yum! I've also made horseradish mashed potatoes before, but now I can't remember what I served them with.

That doesn't sound off at all, I put horseradish in mashed potatoes all the time. Bobby Flay has a really good recipe for twice baked potatoes that involves horseradish.

That sounds yummy. Whenever I want to go all out with mashed potatoes, I add bacon and chives as well as the butter and milk.

O that is something I had never thought of before. I love horseradish (in moderation) so this is definitely something I would love to try!

Horse radish sounds great in mashed potatoes.

For something a little different, I will roast garlic and mash it in with the potatoes.

Chives sprinkled on top is great, too.

Good idea! We love horseradish!

Olga, I think that is a great idea!
Sometimes, I add sliced chives or a mature cheddar grated to the mash. That is yummie with some grilled fish!!

If you are loving horseradish, then try a bit of dijon mustard! Yum.
