Homemade mashed potatoes are pretty easy, but here are some that make it even easier!!
Cooked and kept warm until serving in the crock pot –
What you need:
- 8 potatoes (I like yellow, but any kind will do)
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons pepper
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 4-6 cloves of peeled garlic
How to Do it:
Remove the skin from the potatoes and cut into 1-2 inch chunks. Put everything into the crock pot on low.
Cook for 3-4 hours, until the potatoes are extremely soft and the liquid is nearly gone.
Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes. Add 2/3 cup cream (more if you like your potatoes more runny) or milk and 2 Tablespoons of butter. Continue mashing until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
You can leave the potatoes in the pot on warm to keep them warm for serving. They will get a little sticky and you might need to add more milk and butter to them. I usually serve them within a half an hour.
Serves 6 – 8

This looks great!!! Thank you for linking up to Creative K Kids’ Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party. I have pinned all your recipes to our Tasty Tuesday’s Pinterest Board.
Never thought of doing them in the crockpot thanks for sharing with Pin Worthy Wednesday :)
I love crockpot garlic mashed. I’ve modified mine a bit. I add the white part of one leek, finely minced. I use whit pepper instead of table pepper. I leave out the milk and double up on the cox broth. When the potatoes are soft and ready to mash I pour the excess broth into a cup, add butter and sour cream then mash. It usually looks like it is a little soft but it sets up in the crock pot. I use the reserved liquid in the gravy.
hmmmm = I’ll have to try some additions!! I like black pepper though – I like the flavor of it. Has more bite than white!
