My boyfriend and I are hosting Thanksgiving for 20 this year. I am very excited, as I love to cook and entertain and have family over. I've started planning the menu and would like to cook as much as possible early in the day. I am curious about tricks for keeping mashed potatoes warm. I have heard about the crock pot method, although the only one I own is fairly small. I have a large dutch oven, and was thinking I could boil the potatoes in that, mash in the same pot and it will maintain the heat for at least an hour. Also, I am probably going to rent some chafing dishes.
Has anyone had luck with keeping MPs warm for dinner?
