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.

This recipe is an old standard at our house; made as everyday fare or fancy company dinners. It's an easy travelling potato dish and make-ahead recipe, enjoyed by everyone who tastes its complementary flavors. I sprinkle a bit of paprika on top for added color.

Excellent. I make something every similar during the Holidays. I liked the addition of the sour cream. Something you can't enjoy very often, but is always a crowd pleaser. I made 1/2 the recipe for the 2 of us with left-overs for my son to take home tomorrow. Thanks for sharing. :)

This dish is just simply delicious. I love the fact that I can make this the day before and just pop it in the oven the next day. The flavors come together so much. What a great time saver for Thanksgiving day. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.

I cannot believe that I haven't rated this yet. I made it a few times and we all LUV it. I just made it again for thanksgiving and what a life saver it was to precook it. I make it exactly as stated, only change is use 1/2 cup sour cream, and will do that every time. Thank you for a wonderful easy recipe.

I made this twice, once with russets and once with gold yukons, and it is definitely better with the russets. I made it the night before, stored it in the crockpot insert in the fridge. The next day I just popped it into the crockpot a few hours before dinner, and it worked perfectly! Will make this every time before a big dinner, major time saver.

These make-ahead mashed potatoes were AWESOME!!!! I made them a day ahead and served them for Christmas Eve. My Guests LOVED them! What a great blend of flavor with the cream cheese, sour cream and onion salt. Very easy to make. Would recommend recipe to all! Guests were still talking about them the next day at Christmas!
