GF Comfort Food-Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes

by Karen on January 2nd, 2012

In this picture the potatoes don’t look like much of anything but I can tell you they are easy and taste great.  We made two versions:  with dairy and also dairy-free.

Here is a quick recipe that you can make ahead and bake in the oven while you prepare other things.

Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes

5 pounds of potatoes–peeled, cooked, and mashed


8 ounces cream cheese

8 ounces butter

8 ounces half and half

1 teaspoon each of:

-onion salt

-table salt

-seasoning salt (I used Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt)

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all together and put into a 9 x 13 baking dish covered with foil.

You may refrigerate up to 24 hours.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes with the foil on.
