Do they taste freshly mashed?

  Night Before Mashed Potatoes
They'll never know you didn't just whip 'em!
You won't believe me until you try for yourself.  If you're not trusting enough for this year's big dinner, make note to try them during the year first.  This is the Night Before Mashed Potatoes recipe my family has been using at Thanksgiving for quite a few years now. The texture and taste is like you just mashed them.   ENJOY!

3 lb idaho potatoes
1/4 c milk
2 eggs - lightly beaten
6 Tablespoons butter
Salt & Pepper to taste 

Peel, cube, boil, drain and mash potatoes. Add milk, S & P. Add 1 egg at a time, beating between. Then add 4 Tbs of butter. Butter baking dish, add potatoes, drop remaining butter on top in pieces. Cover and refrigerate overnite. Place on counter to bring to room temperature an hour before baking -- important step!

Bake at 450 deg for 20 minutes (longer if you've made a double batch.  Stir half way through cooking time).  Servings: 8
