Easy Mashed Potatoes with Horseradish and Chives
Pungent prepared horseradish and peppery minced fresh chives provide a new spin on classic mashed potatoes.
Why This Recipe Works
For an easy, creamy mash, we started by cooking sliced Yukon Gold potatoes in well-seasoned water. We used half-and-half because it is richer than milk but not as decadent as heavy cream. Microwaving the half-and-half with the butter before combining the mixture with the mashed potatoes ensured a bowl of piping-hot potatoes on the dinner table. For an easy but flavorful variation, we added pungent prepared horseradish and peppery chives.
