“After my FH underwent emergency oral surgery I had to come up with a yummy dinner that would go down easy and be a snap to make with what I had in the fridge. A lovely, creamy treat that's complimented by gorgonzola.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash potatoes well and cut into small 1 inch cubes, leaving skin on (We prefer potato skins in our mashed potatoes, feel free to removed peels if you prefer a smoother texture.).
  2. Scoop out avocado flesh and place in a large kitchen mixer bowl along with lemon juice, garlic, pepper, salt, margarine, yogurt, and horseradish.
  3. Once potatoes have reach a boiled soft consistency, drain and discard water and add potatoes to ingredients in kitchen mixer bowl.
  4. Rough mash ingredients.
  5. Whisk rough mashed mixture at a medium speed until smooth.
  6. Sprinkle 1 tbsp gorgonzola crumbles and 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper to each serving and enjoy!
