If you’ve ever reheated leftover mashed potatoes and been disappointed with the result, you’ll welcome this recipe from Jessie Fortune of Pocahontas, Arkansas.
“There’s just my husband Joel and me, so I like to make these potatoes ahead and use as I need them…without the dirty pans and all the fuss of mashing them,” says Jessie.
The oven-baked mashed potatoes keep their flavor and creamy texture even after reheating, so you won’t feel like you’re serving leftovers.
Although the recipe calls for reheating in the oven, you can also use your microwave. Simply cook 2-3 minutes on high, stirring twice.
This recipe came out of my mother's cookbook. The smudges and splatters show that Mom used it extensively to feed our large family. The tarragon really comes through to make a flavorful main dish. Now I prepare it for our four children and six grandchildren. —Helen McGeorge, Abbotsford, British Columbia
