It’s a great make-ahead garlic mashed potatoes casserole recipe.  We prepare this creamy potato recipe ahead of time, then pop it into the oven about 20 minutes before serving.   It’s an easy way to prevent that last-minute rush and your creamed potatoes always arrive on the table hot and steamy.   It’s always nice to have a few casserole recipes or make-ahead recipes on hand.   Especially on our major holidays when all the family is together.

 

Tip to make the Creamed Potatoes:

We also use a stainless steel Potato Ricer to eradicate all the lumps in this creamy mashed potato recipe.   Because who wants lumpy potatoes and the ricer makes creamy potatoes so easy.   Use the potato ricer instead of a mixer or hand beating to make this creamed potatoes.

Another trick other than using a potato ricer is the freshly roasted garlic.
