Big family holiday meals can take a while to cook, so some dishes will be ready to serve before others. If you manage to whip up your mashed potatoes before the rest of the meal is ready, these easy tricks will keep them ready to eat whenever dinner is served. In this video, from the America's Test Kitchen YouTube channel, chef Ashley Moore reveals a few methods for keeping your mashed potatoes from getting cold and hardening. The first method is the easiest: put them in a slow cooker on low heat. They will stay warm for an hour or more without overcooking. You can use the same trick for other side dishes, like macaroni and cheese, as well. The second method involves reheating your mashed potatoes in a bowl over a simmering pot of water. Lastly, if your potatoes start to dry out, you can keep them creamy with a little warm milk, broth, or water. Just add a little bit at a time.
