Crockpot Mashed Potatoes

Hello Friends!

Here we are at the beginning of November and to me, that means slow-cooker season! While I use my crockpot all year round, I depend on it more during the fall and winter season. Today we are making a simple side dish that is wonderful with so many meals!

Today’s recipe is also super inexpensive to make. I like to serve these slow cooker mashed potatoes with steaks, chicken, and pork. You can also add a little garlic or bacon to change these up a bit.

Ingredients for this recipe!

Potatoes– of course, they are the star of this show. You will want to use Russet Potatoes. Look for potatoes that are free from dark spots. Do not use potatoes that look green – these should be discarded. 

Butter – As always, I recommend real butter for a rich taste. I like to use unsalted to control the amount of sodium. You can also use margarine for this recipe.

Milk – You can use half and half, regular milk or 2 %.
