Quick Tip

Milk carton with plastic spout
Make the mashed potatoes; refrigerate them for up to 1 day in advance (alternatively, keep them at room temperature for up to 2 hours). To serve, reheat the mashed potatoes in a double-boiler over boiling water, adding milk as necessary, to adjust the consistency, 15 to 25 minutes.
