This is the very best recipe for mashed potatoes!!!! Took all the confusion out of Thanksgiving dinner. The potato ricer is fabulous!!! I got RAVE reviews about potatoes – Didn’t share the secret – make ahead. No panic!! Thank you so much! Made again but halved recipe – worked perfectly!!
WOW!!! This was an absolute favorite for our Thanksgiving! The ricer changed the game, Definitely making again soon!
The best make ahead mashed potatoes I’ve ever had! Quick & delicious!
Could i double this recipe? I’m expecting around 15 people. Thank you so much!
Hi, Nella! Emma here, managing editor for Simply Recipes! Sure, I think you should be fine to double. Just bake it in two separate casserole dishes.
Do you think you can reheat in a crockpot?
Hi, Katie! Yes, I think you could reheat in the crockpot. Check out the instructions in this recipe: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/slow_cooker_mashed_potatoes/
Maybe I missed something, but what do you do with the garlic once you remove it from the pot with the cooked potatoes?
Hi, Irene! It’s in step 2 — mash the garlic cloves along with the potatoes. I’ll tweak the instructions to make it a little more clear. Enjoy!
I did three Christmases today and a Christmas eve party last night, and this recipe saved my life. I made them exactly to the instructions given here, fixed it all up yesterday afternoon, threw it back in the oven an hour before my second Christmas party, and strolled out the door. They were an absolute hit, and I got tons of compliments. The texture was perfect. Cooking the potatoes with garlic and rosemary is something I’ve never tried before, and I may never leave out that pairing again.
Thanks for a great recipe!
Can you taste the cream cheese in this dish. I have some family members who prefer plain old mashed potatos with nothing fancy added.
Hi Margaret, I cannot taste the cream cheese.
