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.
