these are by far one of my favorite potato dishes.. my mother in law was a caterer for many years and this was one of her most popular dishes.. she got the recipe before she was married.. (and i am going to say they will be celebrating their 56th or 57th wedding anniversary this month..) she was visiting her sister in east aurora, new york.. and they went to a restaurant and where they served these potatoes and she had to get the recipe.. well they finally gave it to her.. and she was so surprised.. its potatoes (dohh), butter, prepared horseradish, salt and pepper.. that's it that's all.. i don't stray from the original recipe.. why when they are so good just the way they are!! i did however add chives towards the end.. i had extra after making the grilled stuffed mini bell peppers, that recipe here... and thought what the heck!
horseradish roasted new potatoes
1/4 cup butter
2 tblsp. prepared horseradish
salt and pepper
1 1/2 lbs. small new potatoes
chives, chopped (optional for garnish)
preheat oven to 375 degrees (f).. in a measuring cup or other microwave proof dish melt butter and horseradish for about 30 seconds.. (you want the butter to be all melted) remove from microwave and whisk together.. leave the skin on and cut your potatoes in half for the small guys and in quarters for the larger ones.. place potatoes on a foil lined baking sheet.. pour your butter/horseradish mixture over potatoes and toss to evenly coat.. (i used a big spoon) make sure they are in an even layer and not piled on each other.. put in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.. remove from oven using your big spoon move them around a bit trying to get them to turn over. then back in the oven for an additional 30 minutes or so.. you want them tender but browned.. they go perfect with a grilled steak.. and i am not much of a ketchup fan at all but they are good with spicy ketchup.. (1/2 cup ketchup mixed with a tablespoon of siracha).. enjoy!! and Happy Friday!! i hope you have a great weekend.. tune in Monday to see all the crazy and fun recipes i cooked up over the weekend!!
