I love how I can put all of the ingredients into the slow cooker together, and there is no juggling a drainer to remove liquid from the potatoes. Slowly cooking requires less water, and allows the water the potatoes cooked in to be used to impart flavor when I mash them. I simply use a hand masher and have fluffy flavorful potatoes in no time.

Use your slow cooker for these delicious slow cooker mashed potatoes for your next family dinner, holiday event or potluck.

    Ooh I do like mashed potatoes, but don’t make them nearly often enough. I’ve never made them in a slow cooker before, but I do always leave the skins on – seems such a waste to take them off.

    Oh this looks so rich and decadent with so little fuss. We’re having our first vegetarian Christmas dinner for the family at home this year and I’m so excited about it. This looks like the perfect mashed potato recipe to wow the family!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Doing the potatoes your way is just the thing, especially during the holidays when all the stove burners are going and the oven is taken up by whatever meat is cooking. I haven’t tried making mashed potatoes in the slow cooker but you’ve convinced me to try. Thanks for sharing.
