Really fantastic! I made it the day before and doubled it, so it had to cook a little longer. Very easy, and came out much better than any make ahead mashed potato recipe I've tried. Thanks for helping make Christmas Day dinner easier! Made again this year. Only put it in the crockpot on low for 2 hours and then reduced to warm. Did not do the paprika or cheese. Doubled the recipe, which should have been more than enough. People could not stop eating them! LOVE this recipe!

I made these yesterday for Thanksgiving. They were absolutely delicious, incredibly creamy and very rich. I made them exactly as instructed, mashed them smooth with my immersion blender and then put them in the crockpot on low for 3 hours before dinner. Right before we ate I gave them another quick blend and a splash of milk and transferred them to a serving bowl. Delicious!

What a great way for fix potatoes! I used the yesterday on our early Thankgiving meal with my son whos home from the service for a break. I loved the idea of preparing early in the morning and just popping them in the oven before serving.....FABULOUS!!! I am going to use these for our Christmas dinner when I have the whole gang here! Thank you so much for sharing.

We made these WEEKS in advance while tripling the recipe. We froze them in quart containers and just defrosted for 3 days in the fridge and popped the taters out into a crock pot lined with a crock pot liner (with a tablespoon or two of water between the liner and the crock pot). Once they got hot, they seemed a little 'grainy'... but a little added warm milk and melted butter incorporated into it very well with a few good stirs. They were wonderful. Make extra because they'll be the first to go. Just delicious. Nice to know you don't have to be mashing potatoes at the last minute for your Thanksgiving feast.

I made this as part of a turkey dinner. I didn't make it ahead or bake it, just boiled the potatoes and added the rest of the ingredients. It was delicious; thick and creamy. I will certainly make again. Thanks Kittencal!

We liked the onion powder and shredded cheese on this. Made it for Thanksgiving today and left out those out to keep it traditional.

These were I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E!! Rich and delicious and perfect for a holiday meal! I made them the day before Christmas to go with our holiday meal and they were a hit! I used Yukon Golds and cooked them in chicken stock and used light sour cream and skipped the cheddar cheese-so good! And the convenience of just putting them in the oven gave me the time with my family instead of being in the kitchen. I highly recommend making this!

I didn't make exactly to recipe but I did it close enough. I added lawry's seasoned salt instead of the onion, but the rest was the same. These were awesome. Baked perfectly and it was nice that I could do the hard work the day before Thanksgiving!
