Have the mashed potatoes done before the holiday craziness even begins! In this video, you’ll see how to prepare make-ahead mashed potatoes. Simply mash the potatoes as usual, combining them with sour cream, cream cheese, and seasonings. Then add your creamy potatoes to a casserole dish and refrigerate until you need them. You can bake them—or if oven space is at a premium, try reheating them in the slow cooker. Make them several days ahead, if you like, and chill in the fridge. Watch the video, then get Carol’s 5-star recipe for Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes. What a great way to save time and stove space during holiday dinners. See more Thanksgiving side dish videos >>

i have a mac and it would not play the first time - played a few seconds and quit so I backed it up to 0 and waited a bit - played fine after that. Possibly just did not have time to load. The ad played just fine of course...
