"This recipe finds it's way to my table time after time!!"
"My family loves these potatoes! I make them often for holidays and it is so great to make them the night before and just heat the next day!"
"These potatoes are awesome. My family and I love them. I like that you can make them the day before and just heat in oven."
"I've been making these delicious mashed potatoes for years. Not only are they yummy, but you are not mashing potatoes while your guests wait."
"Super Good! Surprised how creamy they stayed being made ahead and put in the fridge. Omited the onion (due to family members not liking onion) and used garlic salt instead of regular table salt."
"Can you Freeze these potatoes?"
"Recipe-Bot is Taste of Home's automated recipe poster- there is no live body there.Just in case you didn't know that..."
