Mashed potatoes are a great side dish, particularly to grilled meats such as Steaks, Roast Pork and Lamp Chops.
However, its preparation can require a lot of time and energy which we working moms don’t have quite a lot of, do we?
I came across a recipe for crock pot mashed potatoes on Pinterest and I decided to try it out.
I’m happy to discover that the slow cooker does take out the tedious part of making mashed potatoes: boiling the spuds in water and waiting for them to get soft enough to mash. With the slow cooker, you just dump the potatoes along with some broth and butter, then leave them for a few hours.
After adding cream and mik, you get smooth and creamy mashed potatoes.
This recipe is slightly tweaked from the recipe I found on Pinterest due to availability of ingredients.
- 2 k potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2 in pcs
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/3 c butter, diced
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 c milk
- 1/3 c all purpose cream
- Pepper to taste
- Place potatoes, garlic, broth and butter into the slow cooker. Season with salt, mix together and cover with lid. Cook on HIGH setting for 4 hours or low setting for 8 hours until potatoes are soft.
- Mash the potatoes and stir in milk and cream until well combined and creamy. Season with pepper.
- Keep in the slow cooker on WARM until ready to serve.

Now this is convenient, not to mention the slow cooker keeps the mashed potatoes piping hot 🙂
Yep, and you don’t throw out the water used to cook the potatoes so the dish retains most of the potatoes nutrients. 🙂
