Roasted Garlic Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by BasilLover

The texture to this dish is just as though you've made them minutes before serving. I'm pretty much a purest, as is most of my family, and these potatoes were a big hit!

Oh my goodness - there may not be any left for Thanksgiving tomorrow! These are the best and I didn't even follow the directions correctly...boiled the potatoes in salted water instead of broth, and still awesome! Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil potatoes in chicken broth, adding water to cover potatoes, if necessary. Once cooked, reserve the liquid.
  2. Cream the cooked potatoes, roasted garlic and cream cheese. If necessary, use small portions at a time of the reserved liquid to obtain the desired creaminess for the potatoes. (I don't usually need to add much, if at all.).
  3. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Transfer to a greased, 9 x 13 baking dish.
  5. Cool and refrigerate over night.
  6. Let the potatoes come to room temperature for 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 350.
  8. Top with parmesan.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes at 350.
