Let's be honest, mashed potatoes are very necessary in completing any holiday feast AND everyone has their own take on what makes a great mashed potato. 

Having attended tons of holiday dinners myself, as well as hosted a few, I know that there's a lot of choice when it comes to the following: what type of potato is used, how it's prepped and cut or mashed, whether or not cheese is incorporated and the types of seasoning that can be used.

This popular recipe courtesy of Allrecipes has had tons of views since being uploaded in Fall of 2012, and incorporates tons of flavor using yukon gold potatoes, a popular choice within many homes this season. They also go over what's the best way to heat the leftovers the follow day.
