The Oven Is the Best Way to Reheat Mashed Potatoes
Though you can totally put leftover mashed potatoes in the microwave or on the stove, the oven is our recommended method for the creamiest, pillowiest mashed potatoes. For the ideal oven reheat, move the potatoes to a baking dish and spread them evenly. Add cream, broth, or half and half along with butter, cover them, and then warm up low and slow at 350°F.

Move the mashed potatoes to the baking dish. Transfer the potatoes into a 8x8-inch baking dish and spread into an even layer.
