Even More Spuds? Yes!

This time, I am not sharing another potato salad recipe, but another great comfort food method of serving potatoes...mashed, of course! Oh, and let's throw them in a slow cooker this time too, for good measure!

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes


5 pounds red potatoes, cut into chunks
1 tablespoon minced garlic, or to taste
3 cubes chicken bouillon
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter
Salt and pepper, to taste


In a large pot of lightly salted boiling water, cook the potatoes, garlic, and bouillon until potatoes are tender, but firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, reserving water. In a bowl, mash potatoes with sour cream and cream cheese, adding reserved water as needed to attain desired consistency.

Transfer the potato mixture to a slow cooker, cover, and cook on Low for 2 to 3 hours. Just before serving, stir in butter and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Notes! Good stuff. Also, so nice to have these made ahead rather than rushing to get them done with all of your other dishes for dinner.

  1. These were incredibly popular. Might be good to do for Thanksgiving and free up a stove top. They were so creamy and yummy.
