If you are serving more than 4 people, you'll want to double this recipe.
This short-cut version calls for refrigerated fresh mashed potatoes which will save you a good deal of time. It is an acceptable substitute to hand-mashed potatoes, especially considering you will be embellishing them with milk, butter, salt and horseradish. You can increase the amount of horseradish if you like more zip.
1 (24 oz) package refrigerated fresh mashed potatoes.
2 T. butter
1/4 cup milk or half-n-half
2 t. prepared horseradish (not horseradish sauce)
2 t. salt
In a medium saucepan or dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add mashed potatoes and stir until smooth. Add milk, salt and horseradish and continue to stir over medium heat until piping hot. Serves 4.
