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.
