The Best Ways To Reheat Mashed Potatoes
There's a remedy for leftover mashed potatoes that have gone dry and sticky, and that is reheating the taters on the stovetop. Martha Stewart suggests storing the potatoes in a heatproof bowl, then placing the bowl over a pot of simmering water in a double-boiler method of reheating.
A method that avoids mashed potatoes scorching on the bottom of the pan or getting over-stirred, this one starts by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread the leftover mashed potatoes into an oven-safe dish, then add more cream and butter and cover the dish tightly with foil and reheat slowly in the oven until warmed through.
To reheat mashed potatoes in the microwave, add them to a microwave-safe bowl along with some additional milk or cream, and cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Microwave the potatoes at 50% power for 60 seconds, unwrap the potatoes and stir them, then give them a taste to see how hot they are.
Instant Pot
To reheat mashed potatoes in an instant pot, pour a cup of water into the pot, then place the trivet inside. Fluff up the potatoes, add them to the inner pot, and then set the "steam" function. Your leftover mashed potatoes will be hot and ready to eat in just five minutes.
