Whipped potatoes with shallot and horseradish butter

We like Yukon gold potatoes the best for making whipped or mashed potatoes.  You're welcome to use any variety you like...the important thing is to whip them with plenty of sour cream and serve them with the butter!

Whipped Potatoes

I use approximately 1 cup of sour cream per 6 potatoes.  Yeah, that's a lot.  So what?

Shallot and Horseradish Butter

Prepare as much as you will need in the following ratio
1 shallot, minced
1/4 c butter
1 T prepared horseradish

In a glass measuring cup, melt the butter in the microwave with the shallots.  Cook on medium-low until the shallots are soft.  Add the horseradish and mix well.  Allow to harden up if you prefer.  Can be served hard, soft, or melted.

I'm drooling over the mashed potatoes picture. I love good mashed potatoes. Sadly I can't get Yukon Golds where I live. Oh, for a good mashed potato ...

Yes, but you don't have to put up with SNOW! LOL! The shallot and horseradish butter will make any potato taste almost seems a shame to use it on a really good potato that already has good flavor ;-)
