“These are melt in your mouth mashed potatoes, and what could be better than potatoes in the slow cooker?” - by BWAYE
Original recipe yields 8 servings

- 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.

"These were fabulous! Everyone from Thanksgiving wanted the recipe. Followed exactly but next time I think I will cut the butter in half. Heres a hint to keep the potatoes from getting soggy in the cro..." See moreck. Lay a clean terry kitchen towel across the top of the crock then put the lid on. The towel absorbs the steam instead of it running back into the potatoes."
"Using sour cream and/or cream cheese in these mashed potatoes was nothing new to me. I've always used one or the other or both but I also always use either russet or Yukon Gold potatoes rather than re..." See mored skinned. What intrigued me was the idea (duh) of making them ahead of time and then reheating them in the slow cooker. I used the terry towel suggestion, as well as the suggestion to stir them every now and then to prevent them from browning along the edges. As others did, I simply forgot to put the butter in at the last, but with the gravy, the butter wasn't even missed. This method of preparation really eased the busy-ness and hustle-bustle in the kitchen on Thanksgiving day. I'm hooked...I will always make the mashed potatoes this way on Thanksgiving from now on! Thanks for a simple solution to getting rid of at least one step of the Thanksgiving meal preparation. Thanks too, to those of you with the helpful suggestions!"
"This recipe makes AWESOME garlic mashed potatoes when you use the Garlic and Herb Cream Cheese plus add garlic salt, oregano, and 1 cup of an Italian Cheese Blend - we were in heaven!! Thanks so much ..." See morefor a great idea... I will never make any other mashed potatoes again (whether I make Garlic or plain!!) I made mine three days early and refrigerated the stoneware crock until I was ready to cook them."
