"I've had my eyes on this recipe for awhile but was a little unsure how the horseradish would taste. Finally made it & loved the flavor the horseradish added to the potatoes! Yum! It was the perfect amount, not overpowering, but the flavor is definitely there. I didn't have heavy whipping cream, so substituted 4 oz. cream cheese & 1/2 cup sour cream. Next time, I might try it with the whipping cream."
