  • I'm sure you could reheat mashed potatoes but don't know if they turn out as good as when they're freshly made. I saw this recipe for day before mashed potatoes and am thinking about trying it. If your interested go to www.allrecipes.com and then to the recipe search for day before mashed potatoes.

  • Sure, they are great reheated. You might need to add a little milk (or cream, if you're feeling decadent), but they'll be perfect.

  • Actually, we make huge batches of mashed potatoes (when the 50 lb bag goes on sale at the farmer's market) then put family size servings in freezer bags and pop 'em in the deep freeze! this way we have them whenever we want, they last about 6 months, and we save alot more money. Just add milk and butter when you're reheating them and you won't know the difference. We also premake batches of potato pancakes and french fries and freeze them too. yeah, we're poor, saving 4 bucks on spuds doesn't seem like a big deal, but I'll take it :-)
