Here is an easy fix to the hectic scramble to get your holiday meal on the table- One lady said she even freezes the potatoes in single serving baggies for med-week meals. BTW- I just invested in an OXO potato ricer after seeing Lydia cook Italian style potatoes- love it! (Riced potatoes & a little olive oil) It also wrings out cooked spinach!
- Boil water, add peeled potatoes cut into large chunks, cook and drain.
- Mash or use a ricer. Add a teaspoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to help keep the potatoes from oxidizing and let them cool then cover tightly and refrigerate.
- Reheat (microwave, crock pot, oven, stovetop) till slightly warm and then add in the liquids (milk, chicken broth, even a little water to rehydrate can work).

Easy and convenient! Wish I had this recipe long ago! The potatoes reheated perfectly in the microwave. DH is so happy! Thanks for sharing!
