  • ⅓ cup crème fraîche, warmed
  • ¼ cup finely chopped chives
  • 3 Tbs. peeled and grated fresh horseradish root, firmly packed

USE FAT-FREE SOUR CREAM (substitute for chreme fraiche). Definitely will try this one.

These "smashed potatoes" were so good.... on Thanksgiving I brought them without knowing that my stepmother also made traditional mashed potatoes, and these ones disappeared while hers went untouched!
