Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Cats Eye

Do these ahead and save time! I will not eat mashed potatoes that are leftover but my sister said I would like these. I love them!!! You can not tell they were made the day before. What a time saver when you are having a big dinner. They can even be done 2 days before. You will make these again and again! 40 minutes prep time is also boiling time for the potatoes.

These things are outrageously good! I swapped butter for the margarine, ran the potatoes through the ricer, and heated the butter/creme cheese/sour creme mixture before incorporating it into the potatoes. Thank you SO MUCH for posting this recipe.
