I made this for Thanksgiving with my inlaws with a few alterations. I didn't use the horseradish (didn't have any) and used my own discretion with brown sugar. It was a hit! And today is Christmas with the inlaws and it's been requested so here I am getting the ingredient list to go make it again! Read More

We're not big on sweet so I left out the honey and still felt like the horseradish enhanced the sweet taste without adding the enough zip. They were good enough that I might try them again with a little more horseradish. I really wanted to like these more than I did. Read More

Very tasty with the horseradish and a super quick side dish to put together considering that I already had the cooked & mashed sweet potato in the freezer. Used brown sugar and garnished with fresh snipped chives for a sweet and savory taste. Read More

I was a little skeptical about the horseradish and the sweet potatoes but this was great! The first bite was a bit off but after I let the potatoes sit for about ten minutes the horseradish mellowed and it tasted wonderful. Very quick since I did the potatoes in the microwave. Read More

Why is it that everyone who gave this less than 5 stars didn't follow the recipe correctly? Don't leave this and that out- and then complain that it isn't good. I followed this to a T and it was phenomenal. Thanks! Read More

Even if you are not a fan of horseradish this dish is outstanding! My girlfriend served it up to me at her house for dinner I couldn't get enough of them. I was a bit leary how they would taste but I am game to try most everything. Use less horseradish if you are a bit skidish... I 've made this recipe twice already yummmm. Worth trying! Read More

We really liked these but would use half the horseradish next time the ratio to the honey was overpowering for us Read More

these were fantastic. i didn't bake them in the oven though. i just peeled them cut them in to cubes and then boiled them for about 15 minutes. then i went to step 2. i was very skeptical about using horseradish but it made the dish. they are so tasty. i served them along side the brown sugar meatloaf from this site and some broccoli. i think i like these better than regular mashed potatoes.
