Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes:
Mashed potatoes are quite a treat. But making them, I often feel rushed as it’s the last thing and I want everything to stay warm. And they take a bit of time. This recipe allows you to do all the work ahead and then pop it in the oven in time so that they come out hot with the rest of your meal. No more waiting on the potatoes.
