Author Notes: This recipe was inspired by an old episode of Tyler Florence's cooking show. I just love how the horseradish compliments the other ingredients. It adds such a nice layer to an already wonderful recipe. Enjoy these with a juicy steak, a side of roasted asparagus and nicely toasted slices of a french baguette. Table9

Serves 4

  • 2 pounds Red Potatoes, Halved with Skin On
  • 3 tablespoons Sour Cream
  • 5 Sage Leaves
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Prepared Horseradish
  • 3 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 3 tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  1. In a large pot, add red potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and return to pot.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt better. Add sage leaves and cook over medium-high heat until butter starts to turn brown. Remove from heat immediately and remove large sage leaves from butter.
  3. Pour browned sage butter and mash potatoes with a masher or large spoon. Add sour cream, horseradish, heavy cream, pepper and remaining salt to potatoes. Mix to combine. Add cooking water or more heavy cream if potatoes seem dry.
  4. Serve with a garnish of sage leaves.

I am making such a similar variation with leftover white mashed potatoe for dinner tonight, I will not need to post. This sounds great!

Sagegreen:

Just changed mine up a bit by adding some sage brown butter. Please submit yours if not too similar! Would love to see it.

Thanks, but not to worry! I am attempting a shepherd's pie redux instead, so the jury will be out until later! Your change sounds great, too!
