Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes

I've mentioned before that mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things. I make some mean mashers, but new recipes are always fun to try! This recipe was great because you can prepare it beforehand, and then throw it in the oven when you're ready! Give it a try when you have a busy night!
