2 lbs baby red (B size) potatoes, washed and pierced with fork
¼ cup butter
¼ cup milk
½ tsp salt
⅛ tsp pepper
1-2 Tbsp prepared horseradish, to taste
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
¼ cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 350°F. Put potatoes on oven rack. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until fork tender. Remove potatoes from oven. Let rest about 5 minutes. Cut potatoes in half (being careful not to tear skins). Scoop insides into a bowl and set skin shells aside. Add butter, milk, salt, pepper, horseradish and parsley to potatoes in bowl. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes, scraping bowl often, until light and fluffy. Refill shells with potato mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Put on cookie sheet. Grill for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serves 4.
