Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

This revolutionary way to make mashed potatoes will change how you cook them for ever. They are so easy and delicious you will wonder why you did not think of this before.


Over the Thanksgiving holiday my mother in law and I decided we would split up the cooking duties and have Thanksgiving at her house. She made the turkey and stuffing. I made a ham and mashed potatoes.

My slow cooker is the workhorse in my kitchen. I even transported the mashed potatoes that way. Yup, in the slow cooker. I Plugged it in when I got there to keep it warm. Honestly, it could not be any simpler.

If you have mashed potato duty, you need to give this recipe a try.


I decided to make things easy on myself by cooking the potatoes in the crock pot. I peeled mine, you do not have to, I just like them like that. I added some other things to mine to make them taste good. You can put in them what you want. All you have to do is mash them. I used a masher. Some like to use a hand mixer. You can sit that puppy right in the crock pot and mix away.
