Why we love Horseradish Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Today’s Horseradish Mashed Potatoes have butter, half and half, and most of the moisture comes with reserved water from boiling. It’s a great trick to keep them moist and fluffy without adding a lot of calories!  

My grandmother used to put a cube or two of butter and lots of cream into her mashed potatoes–they were sure tasty but holy-moly fully loaded!
