WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE Horseradish SMOKED Potatoes?

I mean, really, I don’t think you could pack any more punch into this potato recipe!

- Kosher salt
- Fresh ground pepper
- Green onions
HOW TO MAKE horseradish SMOKED potatoes
Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees F. Gently wash the potatoes to remove any dirt; you can even brush them gently with a potato brush.
Using a fork, prick each of the potatoes 5-6 times, making sure of two things. First, you need to make sure that the fork goes into the potato about 1/2 an inch or so with each poke. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, make sure you keep your fingers and thumb out of the way of the fork when making the holes.
Trust me, it hurts a lot if you happen to stab your finger instead of the potato. I am speaking from experience here!
Place the prepared potatoes in your preheated smoker. Allow them to smoke for 2 – 2 1/2 hours. I like to use either hickory or applewood for this potato recipe. Sometimes I will even combine the 2 different kinds of wood; I find it adds a little bit of a different taste. Although you can use whatever wood you prefer when smoking these potatoes.
While the potatoes are smoking, cook up the bacon so that it is nice and crispy and set them aside.
Once the potatoes are cooked through, remove them from the smoker and allow them to cool slightly. You can check they are done by inserting a fork into them.
Remove the skins from the cooked potatoes and place the meat of the potato in a large bowl. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes together with the whipping cream, butter, and horseradish, then season with Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper.
I like to use whipping cream instead of sour cream in this recipe. I find it gives the potatoes a smoother and richer taste.
Serving the horseradish SMOKED potatoes
Now to finish off this perfect side dish. Once you have the potatoes smooth and creamy, simply garnish with crumbled bacon and chopped green onions.
