Reheating Mash

Is it possible to reheat mash? I am having a dinner party tomorrow and want to concentrate on the main course so was wondering if reheating mash was possible/good idea?

Thank you

Reheating Mash

I have, yes, but have mixed views.

If you microwave it, it can go a bit 'wet' when zapped, so maybe make it a bit drier to begin with.

If you cover the dish with foil & keep on top of a simmering pan that might be better.

Could you pipe onto a baking tray (with or without grated cheese on top) & place in a low oven to crisp the tops off?

It is possible but why don't you make a virtue out of a necessity and pipe Duchess potatoes tonight and cook them in the oven tomorrow.

Otherwise I think I would reheat mash gently, covered in the microwave.

Rehating mash

A bit late posting now I know, but to reheat mash just put it in a saucepan and add a large knob of butter. Put on a low heat and stir and beat hard with a wooden spoon. It will actually be better than it was before because it breaks down and becomes incredibley smooth.
If you don't keep an eye on it then it will crisp and brown so you need to keep beatng.
