while watching a crock pot cooking show on pbs, reference was made to
"dirty potatoes", described as mashed potatoes w/ horseradish &
onions, and the skin is left on the potatoes. that's all I know about
it(I'm wondering is there garlic or butter also ?). this show was in
the philly PA area. I have done some searching online to no avail. any
help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Bill

When I make my garlic smashed potatoes, I add butter, milk and a scoop of
sour cream.   I would use those when attempting the dirty potatoes.

I have not heard of dirty potatoes, but they do sound good.  If you do not
get any other suggestions, try this...this recipe is off the top of my head
and you can adjust it to your taste.  This is what I would try for a recipe.

6 large red potatoes, cut and quartered, boiled till tender.  Mash with
potato masher.

Sautee
          1/2 chopped red onion
           two cloves garlic

While potatoes are still hot add onion and garlic, 1/4 cup butter, large
scoop sour cream and enough milk to make desired consistency.  Add salt (I
omit this) and pepper to taste.  Add enough horseradish to desired taste as
well.

Hope this helps!
D~

It seems to me like you just described the makings for the recipe. Boil up
some of your favorite potatoes for mashed potatoes, don't peal the
postoes, mash them up as you would normally do, then add in enough
horseraddish and sauted onions to suit your taste, or boil some chopped
onions with the potatoes.

Here's a link to Dirty Mashed Potatoes from (Barry squints, makes
himself very small, controls his nausea and says) Emeril.
