I don’t know about you, but for me, mashed potatoes are one of the biggest sources of stress on Thanksgiving Day. You’ve got to make them fresh and serve them hot in order for them to be the absolute best. I’ve come to love my Greek recipe for baking them, which enables me to make the mash a day ahead and bake it stress-free a few hours before sitting down to enjoy our family meal. The real secret is the addition of dried Greek herbs from the Taygetus mountains, incredibly intense!
Dish can be assembled 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Increase bake time by 5–10 minutes.
