Twice Baked Red Mashed Potatoes

You’ve heard of twice baked potatoes???  Well… this recipe is twice baked red mashed potatoes and it’s just perfect for a spin off the regular ole’ turkey day mashed potatoes.  We had a “mock” Thanksgiving dinner last weekend.  Many of you may already know we’re a step-family so this year we won’t have our kids on Thanksgiving 🙁  We try to celebrate with them somehow, sometimes we just have to do another meal early!   My friend, Kate, told me how she makes these mashed potatoes, we gave them a try…  They were a HIT!!  If you feel like trying something new for Thanksgiving… you won’t be disappointed! (they’d be great any other time too)
