Refrigerator Potatoes (Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes)

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by That Girl

These potatoes are delicious. I think they are great when for Thanksgiving when there are so many other things that need to be done in the kitchen you really don't need the added burden of mashing potatoes. These may be made up to 1 week ahead! Note: Prep time includes cook time for boiling potatoes

OK - I wanted to make mashed potatoes ahead for Thanksgiving, so tried these a few weeks ago. Delicious. I also froze some to try them out. Reheated in the microwave, stirred well, and could not believe how good. So....I cooked 30 POUNDS of potatoes, mixed in several batches, and froze them in Ziploc bags. I laid them flat in the freezer, and marked them. Sure enough, on Thanksgiving, my son said, "These are the best mashed potatoes you have ever made", so I handed him a couple of bags to take home to enjoy! A Thanksgiving regular recipe in my house now. Thanks for sharing.
