How to Keep Mashed Potatoes Warm

By: Cooking Channel

When time is limited and mashed potatoes are a "must have" on the menu (which is always), keep the prepared potatoes warm by placing them in a heat-resistant bowl, covering, and setting it over a pot of simmering water. The potatoes should still be tasty 2 to 3 hours later. If stovetop space is limited, try a slow cooker or crockpot, set on low.
