It’s hard to believe Easter is already creeping up on us! I swear it was just St Patrick’s day. But here it is, almost regularly warm and very sunny weather. The grocery stores are stocked with white eggs and colorful Easter candy. At least that part is easy, but what about the dinner menu?

Do you stick to the same classic menu for holidays every year or do you change things up? I’m a mix of both. I love trying new recipes and sharing the best ones with my friends and family at get togethers, so I’m going to share one of my new favorite holiday dishes with you. And you know what, it doesn’t have to just be a holiday dish! It can, and should, be your new go-to mashed potato recipe, because it’s easy, creamy and delicious. Bonus, it reheats beautifully! So make these potatoes ahead and save time on the big day OR prep as you normally would and reheat your leftovers.

I definitely snacked on leftovers for days, each time tasted like it had been freshly made!
