Horseradish and Dill Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Don’t be intimidated by the horseradish. It provides a mild bite that makes the other flavors pop without adding much real heat.

Serve these with meatloaf or any other dish you’d normally offer mashed taters along- side. Or just do what we all really want to: serve them as dinner all on their own.
