Baked Mashed Potatoes

This is one comforting side dish that you can prepare ahead. My brother was always quick to dive into these creamy and fluffy potatoes when Mom served them with dinner. My sisters and I kept our eyes on him to be sure we'd get our fair share. -Darlis Wilfer, Phelps, Wisconsin
