Sour Cream-Horseradish Mashed Potatoes - Recipes


My family has always loved horseradish in sauces. It is a natural addition to sour cream and is typically a German accompaniment to many foods, especially beef. So when I had a Sour Cream Horseradish Sauce served with potatoes… it was naturally a hit with me. Something about that little bite that you feel all the way to your nose…. I just love it.

Now this sauce has as much or as little bite as you like. I wrote the recipe to have a mild flavor… if you’re like me and like it a bit sharper… just add more horseradish to your taste.

This recipe is very basic… and much of it is to your personal taste.

I keep horseradish sauce in the fridge.. you can find it either in the deli section or the condiment section of the grocery store. It’s ready to use and is pretty much like a horseradish mayo… you can use that instead of the prepared horseradish in the recipe.. either will work… the sauce is usually milder.

You can find prepared horseradish in the dairy section of the grocery store.. it’s usually in small jars.

Unless you know the strength of the horseradish… start with a small amount and add to your taste.

You can use lower fat sour cream.. but the real deal is awesome with this.

Enjoy it on grilled beef or pork… actually just about any meat… this makes a great fondue sauce for beef too.

It also goes well with baked potatoes and even fries. Add a bit into mashed potatoes for some kick… this sauce is very versatile.

Recipe: Sour Cream Horseradish Sauce

Mashed or “smashed” cauliflower is light, fluffy and creamy. Best of all, though, it is easy and quick to serve. I am trying to incorporate more videos into my blog. Let me tell you, taking a video is a complicated business and I have a lot to learn. One thing I have had to learn the hard way (I am still learning) is knowing what shots I will need when it comes time to edit.

Recipe with Great Flavor and a Kick.

I had to make this dish three times to get all the shots. I would sit down to edit and think, crap I needed a shot in between cooking, and mashing. For three days straight my hubby had this dish with dinner. He didn’t complain once, actually said each time what a great dish it was. I played with the amount of horseradish sauce to add. If you are a big horseradish fan, go with freshly grated kind to get the most of the hot kick. Adding in the sour cream, horseradish and chives and this recipe is packed with a great flavor and consistency. I would recommend fresh chives over dry to add that great fresh onion.

Cauliflower is a Nutritional Powerhouse.

Why choose Cauliflower? Cauliflower contains vitamins and folate, two nutrients that are known for the immune system. Anti-oxidants such as vitamin E and beta carotene can keep your immune system in order to avoid heart disease, cancer, and cataracts.

Cauliflower is great for after workouts because it contains high amounts of vitamin K and omega-3 fatty acids, which help decrease inflammation. Helping to shorten recovery time. If you know you are going to have a hard workout or a long run, pick up a head of cauliflower and mash it up for dinner, knowing you are eating something loaded with everything your body needs to recover.

Crispy Smashed Potatoes with Horseradish and Sea Salt

We thought we were mashed potato people through and through. But these smashed potatoes with horseradish cream from Whitney Otawka&rsquos The Saltwater Table have us officially joining team crispy (and they take just 30 minutes to make).

&ldquoGive me potato chips and french fries any day,&rdquo Otawka writes. &ldquoI love crispy potatoes in all forms. When serving potatoes as a side dish, I find it incredibly appropriate to make them such an irresistibly crunchy delight that you can&rsquot put them down.&rdquo

&ldquoCovered with Parmesan cheese, lemon zest and herbs, these potatoes are an indulgence,&rdquo she continues. &ldquoAdd a generous helping of pungent horseradish cream for the finishing touch.&rdquo

Come, join us on the crispy side.

From The Saltwater Table by Whitney Otawka, published by Abrams Books © 2019.

Horseradish Cream

2 tablespoons grated horseradish (fresh or prepared)

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

1 pound (455g) fingerling or baby potatoes

2 tablespoons kosher salt

3 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh chives

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

½ cup (120ml) horseradish cream

1. Make the Horseradish Cream: In a bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, horseradish, Worcestershire, Tabasco, salt and pepper. Store in the refrigerator for up to five days.

2. Make the Potatoes: In a medium saucepan, combine the potatoes, kosher salt and 4 cups (960ml) water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook until the potatoes are cooked through but still firm, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain the potatoes and put them in the refrigerator to cool.

3. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch bite-size pieces. Using the palm of your hand, gently press the potatoes to flatten them.

4. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until very hot. Add the potatoes and arrange them in a single layer. Cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Flip them over and continue to cook for another 5 minutes, occasionally shaking the pan. You are looking for an even golden-brown color on both sides.

5. Pour out the excess oil and add the butter to the pan. When the butter is melted, remove the pan from the heat. Add the cheese, parsley, chives, lemon zest, smoked paprika and pepper, and toss to coat the potatoes in the still-warm pan so that the cheese starts to melt. Sprinkle the potatoes with the sea salt. Serve immediately with a big fat dollop of horseradish cream.
