A wonderful recipe. To keep help warm up prepared potatoes, place in crockpot and set on low to keep warm or place on high to heat up quickly. A nice way to keep potatoes warm.

What incredible flavor these potatoes have. All our guests raved about them at Christmas Dinner. The only change I made was to peel the potatoes before cooking them. I saved a taste for friends who were dropping in the next day and heated it in the microwave. They also loved them and wanted the recipe, so I emailed your page to them. YUM!YUM!

Kim, this was a perfect potato dish to choose for my 9/11 memorial dinner. I doubled the recipe and made two pans the day before. These potatoes stayed nice and creamy, as if I had made them at the last minute! This will be the mashed potato recipe I turn to when making big holiday meals from now on!

This recipe made the creamiest mashed potatoes ever. I didn't change this recipe in any way and everyone loved them at our Thanksgiving family dinner. Making them ahead was a wonderful time saver on such a busy day!

I've used this recipe for 15 years and it is the only way to go. I put it together the day before Thanksgiving and just heat it 45 minutes before dinner. So much easier getting the potatos to the table than mashing at the last minute when there is so much else to tend to. I do put a little garlic powder, not a lot but a pinch. Great way to go, all I have to do is do cook the gravy and carve the bird!

These potatoes were awesome! I made them the Saturday nite before Easter Sunday and they turned out just fine...saved time in the kitchen for visiting, too. We will definitely have them again. Thanks for sharing!

These mashed potatoes are great. And, like Mama's Kitchen (Hope) stated, these potatoes do travel well (I first prepared them last year for a trip to Chicago). I simply kept the dish on ice/in cooler until we arrived and then baked in the stove of our vacation rental. Recently, I made them for dinner and found the leftovers were also wonderful for making potato pancakes. A great tasting, versatile recipe, indeed...thank you!

I followed this recipe exactly (unusual for me!) and it turned out to be fabulous. While my bird "rested" I popped this in the oven with my sweet potatoes and rolls and we had fantastic mashed potatoes that were deemed by my Norwiegan daughter-in-law to be her favorite of the meal! Easy and delicious is the best combination for a holiday side dish... or any side dish for that matter!!
