Is it ok to leave out the horseradish? My boyfriend cant eat it or really absolutely will not eat it in anything. Suggestions on substitutes??

You can simply leave it out! It won’t have the same kick but if you want to you could sub just a little stone ground mustard. I’d start with a teaspoon and taste before adding more :)
