This has to be the BEST recipe Ive ever tried with potatoes.They are great heated over the next day etc. I even love them cold!!!!!
so great to hear it!
Is this the late great Elsie Clemans’ recipe?
Elsie was my grandmother ❤️❤️❤️❤️
These potatoes have become a Thanksgiving tradition in our house. One regular guest says “ I don’t know what you put in these potatoes but they are amazing”
Now I am bringing them to our American Thanksgiving dinner. I know everyone will love them.
Lately, I have been using Herb and Garlic cream cheese rather than regular. Even better!
Can you make these in a slow cooker?
If you still want to follow this recipe, the cooked, mashed potatoes can be put into a slow cooker on low for 30 minutes instead of the oven.
What kind of potatoes are the best? White, or Yukon? I love The Best of Bridge!
Yukon Golds or Russets will yield the fluffiest and smoothest results. Enjoy!
How would you suggest reheating these?
Hi Betty! To reheat potatoes, preheat oven to 350’F. Cover casserole with foil, bake about 20 minutes, or until heated through. The time will vary depending on casserole shape and quantity of potatoes, I’m not sure if you are reheating the whole casserole or leftover portions of the casserole. Enjoy!
If making a day ahead do you bake them, and then bake again before serving? Or just prepare, refrigerate and bake just before serving? Thanks.
Hi Penny, you can bake ahead and reheat or prepare and bake the next day. Both methods work. Enjoy!
How far in advance can you make these and refrigerate before baking?
Hi Kathleen, Elsie’s Potatoes can be made up to 2 days ahead. Enjoy!
Hi, just wondering if you should salt the potatoes when boiling or is all the salt added later?
This recipe has the salt added later but the choice is yours depending on how much salt you prefer.
