Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

Freshly grated horseradish is best in this recipe, but prepared bottled horseradish is more convenient and tastes delicious too.

Serves: 4Hands-on: 25 minutesTotal: 45 minutesDifficulty: Easy

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 3 large russet potatoes (about 3 lbs.)
  • 2 tsp. salt, divided
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • ⅓ cup whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp. grated horseradish
  • ½ tsp. ground white pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley

Directions

  • Peel potatoes and cut them into 2-inch uniform pieces. Put potato pieces in a pot with 1 teaspoon of salt and cold water to cover.
  • Turn heat to medium high and bring potatoes and water to a boil. Turn down heat to simmer and cook until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes. Drain potatoes in a colander and let the steam dissipate for 5 minutes. The steam evaporates the excess water, which allows the potatoes to dry out and makes them fluffier when mashed.
  • Put cooked potatoes in a bowl and mash with a potato masher or an electric mixer. Add butter and milk, and mix to a creamy consistency. Stir in horseradish and season with salt and pepper. Top with parsley.
