More About This Recipe
  • The name says it all—the irresistible creaminess and super-quick preparation time make these mashed potatoes the best party potatoes! If by some chance you have leftovers after your dinner party, you can store mashed potatoes in an airtight container in a refrigerator for three to five days. If you make a big batch of these potatoes and want to freeze some individual portions for later, you can do that, too! Scoop individual portions of the potatoes onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. Freeze uncovered and then put the frozen portions into a freezer bag. To reheat straight from the freezer (or after thawing for a day or two in the fridge), place potato portions in a large pot on the stove on medium to low heat, stirring occasionally. When heated through, add a little extra butter, sour cream or seasoning, if desired. These party potatoes taste delicious as is, but if you’d like to upgrade them or try more recipes for mashed potatoes, we have every tip, trick and recipe you need. Still not satisfied?
