I first tried this recipe when it came out in the Bon Appetit magazine November 1994 issue. I add a bit of garlic powder to mine. I also add a bit more sour cream and 2 Tb. of milk to the mixture for added moisture. These are very forgiving, I have warmed them back up alongside a roast at 400 degrees for only 35 minutes and they turn out just fine. I have used chives or green onion tops instead of the dill when I didn't have any dill on hand. If you like horseradish, you will really enjoy these. Thanks for posting, Bogey'sMom.

We really enjoyed this. I cut the recipe down to serve two. I also used extra hot horseradish. This dish has a wonderful kick to it. I have never drained prepared horseradish before and didn't think there was any extra liquid but there was. The only real change I did was used dried dill cuz I didn't have fresh on hand. Will be making again. Thanks Bogey'sMom for posting.
