Yukon Gold potatoes, cubed
2 (3 ounce) packages
ground black pepper to taste
This is a GREAT time saver for a busy holiday. I make ahead then throw in the crockpot on low the morning of the holiday so that I save oven space and they're ready to eat by the time the rest of the dinner's done. I've had several requests for this recipe. Also really good using redskin potatoes!
I was having several people over for Easter dinner so I wanted to have as much food made beforehand as possible so that I could enjoy my guests. While the recipe was very good (although I would add some chives next time), there just 'ain't nothin like the real thing'. The day ahead idea just did't work and they tasted like leftovers. This recipe should be made fresh.
Great recipe!! I use when potatoes are on sale and make big batch, then freeze in zip bags enough for a meal. Makes several bags. Keeps potatoes from sitting and sprouting and i have one step for dinner already done when i need them. Perfect for working moms, saves some energy and time, yet you still have real mashed potatoes. I make these often.
We have made this for many holiday dinners. You can also put these in a crockpot for 5 to 6 hours. It's a great way to keep them warm without the hassle of watching over them!
When cooking for a crowd -- this is the ONLY way to make mashed potatoes!! I added some minced garlic for more flavor. I made thanksgiving dinner for 20 with only one oven, and it is recipes like this that saved the day. There was not one SCRAP of mashed potatoes left!!
This mashed potatoes were a great basic, easy recipe. The only thing I added was one stick of butter. I did not bake them, I made them the day of and kept them warm in the crock pot.
This recipe is wonderful... I have been useing it for years... it simplafies big family dinners.... when we all get to geather there are 21 of us and so I double the recipe... one grandoughter now requests them for family meals.... so we now call them Amber's mashed potatoes.... I have made them as much as five days ahead..I recomend this for any cook who wants to save a little time on the day of a big meal... PS The most wonderful thing about this recipe is they never taste like wormed overs or leftovers
These were awesome mashed potatoes. I made the potatoes the night before. Instead of heated them in the oven I put them in a crock pot on low. I added milk and butter to remoisten.
