Rach combines potatoes + parsnips with cheddar + horseradish pub cheese for a super-flavorful twist on traditional mashed potatoes. (Feel free to use any kind of pub cheese you like, though.) 

These mashed potatoes are part of Rach's 2021 Thanksgiving feast, which includes Turkey 2 WaysCider Gravy and Cranberry Sauce. John's kicking off the meal with his Gobbler Cobbler Cocktail.
