Holiday Mashed Potatoes

Holiday Mashed Potatoes created by lets.eat

My mom passed this recipe on to me several years ago and I have been making it for every holiday dinner since. They can be made ahead, eliminating the need for mashing potatoes on the big day! I sprinkle a little paprika on top before baking to give it some color. Prep time does not include time it takes to boil the potatoes.

    What should the consistency of the potatoes be before baking? They seem pretty thin to me. I’m worried it’s because I over cooked the potatoes. Will baking alter the consistency? Hoping there is hope for these, as I’m making them for ahead for Christmas dinner

    So this recipe calls for 5 pounds of potatoes. Surely it is more than 6-8 servings, isn’t it?

    This was perfect. I followed the directions exactly and my guests raved. I love that I can make them the day before and then bake the day of!

    After cooking this would it work ok if I transfer to a crockpot to reheat upon arriving at my holiday gathering?
