2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/2 inch thick

Salt and pepper

cup half-and-half

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

cup prepared horseradish, drained

cup minced fresh chives

Directions:

We prefer Yukon Gold potatoes here, but russet potatoes will work in a pinch. Buy refrigerated prepared horseradish, not the shelf-stable kind, which contains preservatives and additives.


1. Place potatoes and 1 tablespoon salt in large saucepan, add water to cover by 1 inch, and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until potatoes are tender and paring knife can be easily slipped in and out of potatoes, 18 to 22 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, combine half-and-half and butter in 2-cup liquid measuring cup and microwave, covered, until butter is melted and mixture is warm to touch, about 2 minutes.

3. Drain potatoes and return them to saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring, until potatoes are thoroughly dried, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat and, using potato masher, mash potatoes until smooth and no lumps remain. Stir in half-and-half mixture, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper until fully incorporated. Stir in horseradish and chives until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve
