Did you know that mayonnaise can help you make the most perfect mashed potatoes for the upcoming Thanksgiving dinner and all the other occasions? Adding mayo to your mashed potatoes enables you to make the dish upfront without worrying about its texture.

No Thanksgiving feast is complete without a bowl of mashed potatoes. However, you’re probably used to making them last minute, because you want them to stay warm and fluffy for dinner time. That’s probably the only problem we have with them — that we’re not able to make them upfront.

This year, we learned a trick from Justin Chapple who adds just a bit of mayo to mashed potatoes.

The secret behind this tip is that mayo won’t harden once you leave the mashed potatoes in the fridge. You still need butter, but you will replace a part of it with mayonnaise you probably have in the fridge anyway. We have a feeling this is going to be the most delicious Thanksgiving ever!
