Here is a quick and easy recipe for Horseradish Garlic Mashed Potatoes that can be made at the last minute. Do not peel off the skin – its good healthy fiber. Cooking the potatoes in the microwave preserves the flavor rather than having it go into the water when you boil the potatoes.

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 4-5 Servings


2 lbs. Scrubbed and rinsed Russet Potatoes

4 Tbs. Butter

½ cup Buttermilk

¼ cup Cream

3 Tbs. Sour Cream

1 Tbs. Beaver Brand Cream Horseradish - or more to taste

1 tsp granulated Garlic or Garlic Powder

Fine Sea Salt & White Pepper to taste


1Make a slit in each Potato down the middle. Cook the Potatoes in a microwave on high for 3 minutes on one side and turn over to cook an additional 3 minutes on the other. Pinch the largest Potato & it should yield easily and be soft. If not, continue to cook the Potatoes for an additional minute or two. The length of time depends on the strength of your microwave & the size of the potato.

2In a large saucepan, heat the Butter, Buttermilk, & Cream, until just boiling.

3Add the potatoes and mash with a potato masher.

4With a wooden or stainless steel cooking spoon, stir the Potatoes to incorporate the liquid with the Potatoes.

5Add the Sour Cream, Horseradish, Garlic, and Salt & Pepper to taste and stir again to thoroughly incorporate the seasonings. Or you can use your favorite mashed potato recipe & add Beaver Brand Cream Horseradish.
