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:
-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.
Here are some good dairy free substitutions:
dairy free cream cheese
dairy free butter
dairy free half and half
