I make and review a lot of potato dishes but this one was special. It was simple to make and tasted great. I can imagine this lovely fresh tasting sauce over any sort of steamed veggies too. In fact, we had steamed asparagus tonight, and both loved it dipped in this sauce.

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about this recipe. I was afraid that it would be too tart for my liking. I made it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. I added creole seasonings to the butter and found the end result was slightly tart, but not overpowering and at the same time slightly sweet. I was also surprised with the tameness of the horseradish. DH and I really enjoyed this and will make it again.

Both DH and I really liked the taste. We thought it was a bit on the dry side. I plan to make again, mixing extra horseradish and lemon juice and drizzle over the potatoes when they are done. Thanks, Kelly M. for posting
