Probably the most important entity of your Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and/or Christmas dinner is the mashed potatoes. There is about 10,000,000 ways to make them and I usually stick to roasted garlic and non-fat Greek yogurt but this Thanksgiving we celebrated the once in a lifetime event of Thanksgivukkah. To marry the flavors of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving I made horseradish and chive mashed potatoes. I'm not a fan of horseradish at all but apparently they were received by rave reviews! Of course the original recipe came from Buzzfeed and their incredible Thanksgivukkah menu, but I used a little less horseradish because I didn't want to offend anyone's taste buds. If you want to try something different with your side dishes then this is sure to please those with pallets that are up to experimentation!
What you'll need:
1 whole head of garlic, roasted
3 pounds Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes
2 tbs. horseradish
1 cup non-dairy creamer
3 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 large bunch chives
1. Roast your garlic at 400* for 45 minutes.
2. Peel and boil your potatoes (remember, ALWAYS boil potatoes in cold water. This will take anywhere from 25-35 minutes). Drain and use a hand mixer to mash your potatoes.
3. Slowly add the creamer salt, pepper, and garlic. Continue to mix until thoroughly combined. Chop and add ¾ of the chives and horseradish.
4. Garnish with the remainder of the chives and serve immediately.
