My First Crazy Cooking Challenge!

If you've never heard of the Crazy Cooking Challenge, please click on the logo above. I discovered it a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to participate! This month, we're asked to make Mashed Potatoes and I chose this recipe from Fearless Kitchen that adds horseradish to the mix. I served it with some Pork Chops in Champagne Sauce inspired by Robin Miller. To jazz it up though, I also added chopped apples and mushrooms. We really enjoyed every last bite and I can't wait until the next challenge!

Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

3 lbs new potatoes, skins on
1/2 c cream
4 oz horseradish cheddar cheese, grated


1. Chop the potatoes into bite-size pieces. Add to saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until the potatoes are tender, 15 minutes.

2. Drain the potatoes and immediately return them to the hot pan. Add the horseradish cheddar and cream. Sse a masher to mash the potatoes to desired texture.

Sounds like a fabulous recipe and something a little different for the cooking challenge. Visiting from #72.

And yes, I workout and eat too. I've always said I run so I can eat what I want!

This was my 1st Crazy Cooking Challenge too! I love how simple you're recipe is. Would be great on one of those where I work a double shift and then have to do it again then next day.
