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?
