Make Ahead Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes
Make Ahead Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes are a great way to get dinner going early so you do not have to rush around checking and making every thing at the last minute. And potatoes are one of those veggies that can be made ahead with out any issues of flavor or texture. Potatoes are a great food. They are filled with vitamins and minerals including vitamin C. As well, they are loaded with fiber, especially if you leave the skins on them. This recipe calls for the potatoes to be peeled, but there is no reason to do so. Yukon Gold potatoes, the kind this recipe recommends, are terrific made with the skins intact. And you will have bumped up the nutritional value of the dish considerably.
These potatoes are prepared the day before. That is another great thing about potatoes. Their flavor stays rich and full even overnight in the fridge. And that is what this recipe is all about. You prepare this dish the night before, and just let it sit in the fridge. The next day you can remove the dish from the fridge, and then bake it whenever you are ready for the potatoes. And if you have a good bake and serve dish, you literally pop it out of the oven and on to the table.
This is a quick and easy recipe, and as the website recipe creator notes, one way to make preparation of celebratory meals a bit easier. This way, you have the potatoes out of the way a full day ahead of whatever big dinner you might be trying to prepare. But this dish is not good just for special occasions. Make it whenever you might want to get some things out of the way. Make this dish soon. Every one will enjoy it, and Yukon Golds are a great potato to try, if you have not had them before.
