Before Thanksgiving we posted this recipe for Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes that we found on Pinterest. They looked yummy and I was up for trying anything to make our cooking and clean-up on Thanksgiving easier!
So, did it work? YES!
The Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes were a huge hit and turned out great! We changed up the recipe a bit to suit our taste by adding garlic and cream cheese. We also used chicken stock instead of water in the crock pot.
Honestly, even though they turned out so well, I am not sure that this will be my normal way of making mashed potatoes. They were in the crock pot for around 5 hours, whereas normally it only takes 30 minutes or so to boil the potatoes on the stove. On days that I want to set it and forget it or will be out of the house, crock pot mashed potatoes will be my go to recipe. For the rest of the time… well, I probably will just make them normally or throw together instant potatoes :) LOL!
These would be perfect for Easter and might just make it onto the menu!
