I really enjoyed the horseradish flavor to these however we did feel they needed more butter.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs potatoes, we keep the skins on (Yukon Gold, red or Russet varieties work well)
  • 1 cup milk, warm
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons horseradish
  • kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper


  1. Warm the milk and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until the butter melts and set aside.
  2. Place potatoes in a medium saucepan with cold water to cover. Bring to a boil, then add 1 teaspoon of salt. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes are very tender. Drain, and then pass the potatoes through a food mill or a ricer into a large mixing bowl (alternatively, you can use a potato masher or large fork). Stir in the warm milk and butter mixture until it is absorbed and the mixture is smooth. Add the 3 tablespoons of horseradish, season with salt and pepper and combine well.
  3. Serve hot.
