Horseradish & Herb Mashed Potatoes

The potato....oh how I love thee!

I could say a million words, sing a thousand love songs and nothing would come close to truly expressing my deep devotion to this starchy, tuberous crop!

I feel like Bubba from Forrest Gump when I list all the ways I love to eat the potato....fry it, saute it, bake it...I don't care, just get in my belly!

With all that being said, and you now judging me because I seriously proclaimed all of that of an inanimate object, I will share with you the most recent way I have found to consume my favorite plant.

I saw a recipe similar to this and requested we have it for my birthday.  Since it was after all my birthday, I was relieved of the cooking duties so I did not get to document it.  In order to have it on the blog, I took one for the team, making a true sacrifice and made them again, with a few edits of my own!

Horseradish & Herb Mashed Potatoes

2 lbs red potatoes
1 stick butter
1 cup half and half
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, crumbled
1 tablespoon chives
2 tbsp fresh or prepared horseradish
Salt and pepper to taste

Boil the potatoes for 30-40 minutes, or until tender. Remove from the heat and mash the potatoes with the butter until no lumps are left and add the remaining ingredients to the mashed potatoes.

Stir in the horseradish and thyme, and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Taste and see how you are doing....adjust flavors if needed.  If they seem dry add some more sour cream and/or half and half.
I served mine with braised lamb shanks and both were heavenly and even better together!
Pin It!
