The holidays can be stressful! One way to reduce stress is to make side dishes ahead of the holiday! You will love this perfect rich and creamy mashed potatoes recipe!
- Add peeled, diced potatoes into a large pot and fill room temp with water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes.
- Drain potatoes and place them back into large pot, and mash until smooth. Add cream cheese, sour cream, butter, and spices and mix until combined.
- Transfer potatoes into a large slow cooker and top with pats of butter. Place in refrigerator until ready to reheat.
- To reheat potatoes, turn the slow cooker on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.
Reheat: You can use the oven to reheat as well. Place mashed potatoes in greased 9-13 baking dish, instead of a slow cooker, and top with pats of butter. Preheat oven to 350ºF (175ºC) and bake for 30 minutes or until heated through.
