This turned out so great for us. It was convenient and quite tasty (and no leftovers, so I know it went over well with everyone). I made this dish for Thanksgiving this year, and it travelled well and heated up nicely when it was time to get dinner on the table. The potatoes were very moist and fluffy, too. It's such a convenient make-ahead dish for a busy cooking day. Now that I know I can make the mashed potatoes ahead of time, it will reduce that traffic jam in my kitchen that ultimately happens every Thanksgiving. This will be my "go to" recipe every year.

Everyone loved these potatoes. I LOVE the idea of making these ahead of time and then just popping them in the oven before dinner. I did put the butter on top, but it really didn't need any more butter. Next time, I will leave that off. Thanks for a great recipe!

Love! Love! Love! Was able to make in the morning and throw in the oven with my meatloaf. Can't wait to do these for the holidays! Update: Just made for the second time to compliment a roast. I have never before boiled whole unpeeled potatoes before mashing until today. I must say that they came out so much better. Easy to get the skins off, and potatoes were not watery whatsoever. I think I will skip the potato peeler and dicing from now on. EXCELLENT!!

Everyone loved this! Perfect. Peeled before boiling. Convenient-- let warm up on low for 3 hours in crockpot. Served with roast chicken and fresh green beans. TY. :)

These potatoes were fantastic. I did peel them prior to the boiling process to make things a little easier, though. And, because I had fewer people for dinner than I had expected, I had a few leftovers. I simply added some shredded cheese, bacon (cooked of course), and a little more butter and heated them up again. I think the leftovers were even better! Nonetheless, being able to prepare these ahead of meal time really helped streamline things. I will use this recipe again and again.
