I enjoy entertaining and always look for recipes that can be made ahead of time. I got this comforting potato recipe from my mother-in-law. It's wonderful because I can prepare it the night before. It contains basic ingredients that everyone loves like milk and cheddar cheese. -Beverly Templeton, Garner, Iowa

"This is even better when you whip it up until smooth in a sturdy stand mixer."

"I would rate this delicious food five stars, but it is lacking in the cheese and salt department. I also added chives, which made it amazing. I added three teaspoons extra salt, and I plan on tripling the cheese next time"

"My family enjoys this recipe because it tastes like mashed potatoes and I like it because I can make it ahead. It's comfort food at its best. I also halved the recipe."

"Potatoes for a crowd. The cheese is a nice variation on regular mashed potatoes. I like it with the chives."

"This makes a great pot luck casserole or just for a family Sunday dinner..if it's a special occasion, I crumble several pieces of crisp cooked bacon and add some extra shredded cheese to the top during the last 10 mins of cooking..makes it extra special!"
