Mashed potato holidays

Mashed potato holidays are the best.* In their honor, here’s a giant never-fail mashed potato recipe that, true to the name, can be kept in the fridge and re-heated. It’s perfect for a make-ahead situation … or if you just love mashed potatoes.

Refrigerator Mashed Potatoes

5 pounds potatoes
6 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons onion salt
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Cook and mash the potatoes — or whip them if you prefer. Add the remaining ingredients; beat until fluffy. Cool, then cover and refrigerate. May be used for up to two weeks.

* That sentence was a tweet I sent on Thanksgiving. Someone at work thought it was clever, because it was picked up for our daily “people” column. I’m people — who knew! Also: I’m a firm believer that any day can be a mashed potato holiday.
