I'll be using my crock pots as well. I'm making the mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes ahead of time and will throw them in the crock pots that morning. Oven space is precious!!

I have one of those serving trays--kind of like a steam table set up where you have a heating tray on the bottom and two or three or four stainless "holding" dishes that fit on top. This works great for reheating rolls and for holding veggies, etc. You can also use a fondue pot for holding gravy.

I have a big electric skillet that has a warm setting. I wonder if that would be good enuf to keep mashed potatoes warm. I'm making my mashed potatoes the day before. I'll take them out of the refrigerator a few hours before it's dinner time. Than I was thinking of reheating in this skillet. It's like a deep electric skillet so there is plenty of room for them. I"m using my ONLY crock pot to keep the squash warm.

I do alot in crock pot, I have 4 of them. From a Large family you learn plan b quick and the crock pot works great as the turkey is done everything else is.

When we all gather we do buffet style so the crock pots work well.
Happy Thanks giving all
