Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes
My mother in law brings Crock pot mashed potatoes every year for Thanksgiving and it’s so easy. Crock Pots are so easy to transport and then can easily be plugged in once you arrive at your destination. Keeps the food warm until dinner and doesn’t take up oven space! What more could you want?
I love potatoes! I lived on them when I was pregnant, and I swear I put Boston Market out of business. It was the one comfort food that sustained me.
Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes are one of those traditional holiday dinner sides. You really can’t go wrong serving potatoes. I mean who doesn’t like potatoes?
Can you Freeze Mashed Potatoes?
If you have leftovers, You will love the Left Overs Station I created. But really……leftover mashed potatoes……I think that’s an oxymoron. This recipe is also easy to freeze. An airtight container should be used. I use the Glad Freezer containers to make it easy! They should be good for at least 6 months.
I grabbed a stack of Chinese takeout boxes, along with my free printable Left Over labels and had people dish up what they wanted to take home! It’s organized, clean and people love it! You also don’t lose any of your valuable Tupperware.
