I skipped the horseradish entirely. It was very good with the gouda. Wouldn't have thought of using that type of cheese!

I agree that they should have a little less horseradish but otherwise I think they are good mashed potatoes. I haven't had them at cheesecake factory so I can't comment on that.

My family absolutely LOVES these potatoes! I have made them for guests who have referred to them as "crack", since they can't stop eating them and can never figure out what is in them that makes them taste so wonderful! I highly recommend trying them and sharing them with guests, I promise they will be a BIG hit!

This potatoes tastes great,I don't think they taste like CCF , I put half the cheese and 1 tsp of horseradish after reading reviews, they came out really good,even my picky 6 year old girl likes it.

i don't know if it tastes EXACTLY like the CF one but its pretty good. I never would have thought to put these ingredients together but they really do compliment each other very nicely. I followed it exactly and you all are right - the horseradish is too overpowering. When mixing the horseradish in just add it in slowly while tasting until you think think it's ideal.

These taste nothing like the CF mashed potatoes. The horseradish overwhelmed the potatoes and the whole mixture was extremely too thick. I added extra butter and even added some milk to even out the flavors. It did not work. This recipe was definitely not good!

I made these and they taste nothing like the Cheesecake Factory....the horseradish was so over powering and the cheese was quite strong as well.

Very good. I'd prefer them with a little less horseradish. Look and taste a lot like the ones from the Cheesecake Factory.
It's ok to cheat a little by using convenience foods in your cooking. Refrigerated crescent roll dough comes in very handy in recipes like cheddar spinach appetizer squares, mini pepperoni rolls, or simple bear claws.
