These incredibly creamy mashed potatoes can be prepped a day ahead and then baked in the oven when you're ready for them to be served which makes them perfect for Thanksgiving Day or any other special occasion!
Add a few tablespoons of butter over the top of the potatoes and place in a preheated 350 degree oven until the butter is melted and the potatoes are warmed through; about 30 - 40 minutes.
1. If you prepare these potatoes the day before Thanksgiving you will need to cover them with plastic wrap and/or aluminum foil and place in the refrigerator.
2. Reheating takes about 30 minutes or so. I like to take them out of the refrigerator to bring to room temperature for about an hour.
3. You can stir in chopped cooked bacon into the potatoes too!
4. I always double this recipe and use ten pounds of potatoes. We love this recipe that much!
