Traeger Thanksgiving: Do-Ahead Creamy Mashed Potatoes

The last minute rush on Thanksgiving to get everything on the table, while making sure it is all hot enough to actually consume can be hectic to say the least. This recipe for Do-Ahead Mashed Potatoes can be made up to a day in advance and then thrown on the grill to reheat while your bird is in it's final roasting phase. Of course, just the ease of making the mashed potatoes ahead of time is not enough when it comes to your Thanksgiving meal, they have to be delicious also. Oh, are these potatoes delicious. Perfectly creamy and savory, with just a hint of wood smoke this side dish is guaranteed to be a star of the show.

 

Do-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

 

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes then 45-40 minutes to reheat.

Serves: 15-20 people
Recommended Pellets: Any


INGREDIENTS
5 pounds russet or Yukon gold potatoes
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, cut into 8 chunks, plus 1 tablespoon for buttering the casserole dish
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup milk, plus more if needed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

PREPARATION
1. Peel the potatoes (if desired) and cut into chunks that are roughly the same size. Cover with cold water and add a teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer the potatoes until they are tender. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Stir over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes to evaporate any excess moisture.

2. Mash the potatoes with a hand-held potato masher. (Alternative, rice the potatoes using a ricer or using a hand-held mixer) Incorporate the butter and cream cheese. Add milk until the potatoes are of a good consistency. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.

3. Butter the inside of a casserole dish. Spread the potatoes out in an even layer in the casserole dish, smoothing the top with a spatula. Cool, cover, and refrigerate if not cooking right away.

4. Before cooking, let the potatoes warm to room temperature (about an hour). When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

5. Bake the potatoes for 45 to 50 minutes, or until hot through and through.

So, people love to receive home decor items as gifts on Diwali. Make sure you keep informed about any and every product you buy for the baby because of the fact that you may have looked publications and pamphlets that there are always reminders of unsafe product being advertised because a paper is confirmed unsafe for children and infants with what probably can be transformed into an article risky for them to manipulate or play, and watch for the new as it is made available and ensure complete your product registration information if needed and snail mail it in or submit it on the line to keep in the loop when a callback never occurs. The Flitter Fairies are super adorable for girls and will keep them entertained for hours.

This is created possible from the power saving feature which will switch off the face display if the watch is left within the dark. The G Shock technology continues to be around since 1983, so it is tried and tested and indeed stands up to the process. When the watch display appears "AL", you'll be able to stop pushing the button.

Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.                  P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

E-book readers  Since reading is a favorite pastime for most people, these gadgets are in great demand today.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
