Creamy Mashed Potatoes

This is a great “special occasion” potato recipe. You can save time on the special day by making it the day before. Refrigerate, and then just pop in in the oven to heat before dinner. To make ahead, complete up to step 3, cover and refrigerate. To reheat from cold, add about 15 minutes to the cooking time.
