Update: Thanksgiving 2006. I have made this casserole each year for Thanksgiving since 2002. Here are my comments from November 2002, totally unedited: I made this dish for my family's Thanksgiving Day feast. Dorothy, thanks for the suggestion you made in a thread discussing pros and cons of re-heating mashed potatoes! This was simply divine! This recipe proves beyond a doubt that reheating mashed potatoes CAN be done without any sacrifice in flavor! My son, who is a true traditionalist, told me that I could just plan on making these potatoes every single Thanksgiving from here on out! Not only were these potatoes creamy and tasty and beautiful to behold, but the pre-cooking of this casserole a day before Thanksgiving made my day so much easier! I advise anyone who believes you can not successfully re-heat mashed potatoes to try this one. And soon!

Dorothy, thank you so much for recommending this dish to me! It was perfect for the occassion! So easy to prepare and ready with a simple heating on the day needed. I will be using this recipe often from now on when I need to prepare for a crowd in advance. Thanks, Dorothy!

Made this to take to my daughter's for Christmas. It was a huge hit with everyone wanting to take some home. The only change I made was to butter the bread crumbs. Oh I forgot, my fresh parsley patch was covered with four inches of snow so I used dried.

I have made this recipe many times. I have rarely been disappointed by any recipe in Canadian Living. It is so handy not to have to worry about last minute preparation when cooking for a crowd.It is always enjoyed by the crowd.

Well... this recipe tasted good but the texture wasn't what I would expect for mashed potatoes. These turned out too dense and thick. I weighed my potatoes to make sure I followed the recipe. For sure the flavor was there... but next time I'll add a cup of milk or so to it and see if that makes them a little lighter and creamier.

Excellent casserole. Easy to do and making it ahead really improved the flavors blending. I did this for Easter dinner and it was a hit. My daughter really loved it.

I served this with ham. It was wonderful and making it ahead of time really saves work when you have a large meal to prepare. Thank you for a fine potato recipe. I am always on the lookout for potato recipes.

My family and I really enjoyed this recipe. I make it ahead of time sometimes so that I don't have to cook on busy days. A real time saver, and really tasty! Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
