This was pretty good, but way too rich in the end for me. I would cut wayyyy back on the half & half next time.

This was a big hit -- I was worried I was over-generous with the horseradish, didnt realise how hot it was, but everyone loved this novel twist on an old favourite, definitely a make-again! Thank you for sharing!!

This delicious dish is so flavorful with the addition of the horseradish and it is definitely worth the effort. The only changes I made was to scale back just a little bit on the prepared horseradish and I used panko bread crumbs as I didn't have fresh bread. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2014.
