Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes

I combined 2 different recipes I found on website I frequent--on the cooking forum. These made THE best mashed potatoes and I will definitely make these again. It was so nice to have dishes made ahead for Thanksgiving--especially when the Packers were playing! :-)
Make ahead Mashed Potatoes

5 lbs. potatoes
6 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp onion salt (don't omit)
1.5 sticks butter
2 tsp chives
2 heads of roasted garlic

Peel, cook and drain the potatoes. Mash and add all ingredients. Place in casserole dish and dot with butter. Cover & bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
You can make this a couple of days ahead and keep in the refrigerator.  When ready, you can put this in the crockpot(Beth did this)

****  If completely cold, 5 lbs will take 3 hours to reheat in the crockpot and can then sit on warm for a couple more hours. I stir them close to the 3 hour mark to make sure they are heated through.
