  2. Remove from the heat and mash the potatoes with the butter until no lumps are left, then heat 100ml whipping cream and the milk together and add that to the mashed potatoes. Stir in 2 tbsp grated fresh horseradish, ready grated horseradish from a jar, or creamed horseradish (for a slightly milder taste), then season to taste.

Gorgeous! Great side for the Guinness Stew, and plenty left over for the freezer and a quick meal! Will be using this as a staple recipe for mash from now on!

We use this mash in the nursery as a change, we serve it with good quality sausages and seasonal vege. We use half the horseraddish and the children just love it.

Just lovely. Bit of cream is essential and the horseradish doesn't make it too hot or anything, just a lovely taste. Will definitely do this again.

Such a simple idea but OMG!

Also have a version that adds chopped sunblush tomato and parmesan that is beautiful.
