    Thanksgiving Must: Perfect Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

    Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes
    If you’re like me, your head is swimming with worries when the dinner countdown starts ticking on Thanksgiving day.

    Is the turkey cooked enough? Or even worse: Is it overcooked and dry? Wait, why is the gravy all lumpy? I need a sieve, stat! Oh no, are the rolls still frozen?

    During all that last-minute chaos, the last thing I want to be doing is whipping — or more likely over-whipping — my potatoes into a gluey mess. And let’s say I do whip them perfectly. Great, but are they still hot? Probably not as hot as I want them to be. Room temperature is more like it.

    Well, this year, I’m taking the potatoes out of my final kitchen scramble, making them ahead and serving them creamy and lava-hot directly from the oven. Do I know it’ll work? Yep, because I’ve tested these make-ahead mashed potatoes several times — at a potluck dinner party and for a weeknight family meal. Why these? Well, 130-plus glowing reviews couldn’t wrong, right? The verdict from friends, family and Food.com members: These are the best, most crowd-pleasing mashed potatoes you’ll ever have.

    Here’s how to make them »
