I loved the idea, but thought it was rather bland and not as creamy as I would have liked. I am a fan of horseradish and couldn't taste it at all. I have a recipe for mac & cheese that adds sour cream so I think next time I would do that and maybe more cheese or a little cream cheese to up the creaminess. And I will definitely increase both the mustard and horseradish to give it a little more oomph.2Reply
