Really good! After assembling, I put them in my crock pot dish and refrigerated overnight. I reheated in the crock pot for several hours with a few pats of butter on top. Would never have had time to make mashed potatoes on Christmas day otherwise.



I use a recipe very similar to this one but with a few changes. I don't use any milk but use two sticks of margarine instead. After boiling peeled potatos, I place all ingredients in a large bowl and use an electric mixer to combine ingredients and make them very fluffy. I don't use any onion salt either, just lots of pepper and salt. I don't ever bake mine either. If making ahead, I put them in a microwave safe caserole bowl and microwave them for about 10-15 minutes prior to serving. Hope this helps!



Make these every Thanksgiving now. So good and helps doing them ahead. I usually put a couple of cloves of garlic in the pot when I boil the potoes and then just mash them right in too.
